Taken at the forsythe NWR. The odonata are slowly coming back after SuperStorm Sandy which flooded the freshwater impoundments at the refuge with saltwater.

pawprint wild passion fruit has subtil yellow bloom

I've had these perennial vines growing around here for some years now, and I like them because they need little tending, and they like a lightweight trellis. Various pollinators like them too, the red wasp, and the little green bees, and these guys with the stripe. I've got lots of extra roots if any member needs some of this stuff, (the fruit is small 1/2" diameter, but it does taste like passion fruit) let me know if you need some hearty rootstock.

Wow Is that ever a nice bright, orange red beauty.
I saw my first PURPLE last week. What a surprise to see something as that!
