Pictures of birds, plants and other things in the garden.

I grew up in Missouri and as a kid we planted marigolds, zinnias and petunias around our patio. Basic flowering plants for Missouri. Then in my twenties I moved to California and was introduced to all kinds of exotic flowering plants. I'll never forget the first time I saw a passion flower. I was convinced that they were plastic flowers that someone had stuck on a vine. I was totally amazed to find out they were real. I had never seen anything like it before.
This variety of Passion flower was the first one I saw and this particular vine grows on our balcony. The Passion Flower below is growing on the fence of a nursery in Los Osos, California.
