The Heady Fragrance of the Passion Flower
The heady fragrance of the passion flower is almost overpowering. It grows wild in my back yard coming back every year in a new place.
This summer two large plants have taken root under one of my living room windows. It has crawled up the house, across the window screen and up to the roof overhang.
I have clustered other plants under the window and have placed a simple lawn chair in the center to create a shady, quiet, perfumed spot to read a book or enjoy a cool glass of iced tea.
Hayley would not sit on the chair because the plants were too close. She doesn't like bugs.
Have a wonderful weekend.
