I think this is one of the most amazing examples of nature’s handiwork,especially that intricate assembly at the centre. One could use that as a basis for the next alien creature in a sci-fi movie!

    Certainly is a gorgeous flower. Don’t see too many of them in the Eastern Ontario woods! Great shot, George. Amazing detail.

  • I’d never seen one anywhere! Heard of them,that’s all. Didn’t know what it was until I went and found a Gardens employee and asked.

    It is a challenge getting a good shot of a Passion Flower, you did a marvelous job.

  • Thanks Sharon, I walked past it twice before realizing it was so beautiful and I didn’t know what it was…LOL!
