Passiflora aurantia watercolor "painting"

This has so far been, a bad year for my passion flowers... not many have bloomed so I don't have many photos to "play around with"..... if anyone wants to "donate" any that would be wonderful!...

Trying new things.... my wacom tablet isn't working properly so it's an extra obstacle to my inspiration....! But that's ok...

Passiflora racemosa playing around with....

Just trying different techniques with photoshop and playing...
(Katie Pertiet from Designer Digitals is
the creator of the photo frame)

Passiflora x violacea (P. atropurpurea)

I bought two plants which ended up being the same thing! But it's a gorgeous plant so I don't mind at all. Just means Mom gets one of them and she's tickled to death about it!.....

The buds are the most beautiful purple but seemed to take forever to finally open up... but once it did,... the wait was well worth it!

P. aurantia

This one bloomed fairly quickly after I bought it...The blooms really do get deeper in color each day they are open! It's a beautiful plant!

Passiflora 'Blue Bouquet'

This is a second year plant and today is the first day to rebloom! I love the dark center compared to the whitish-light purple petals..... This one has probably 10-15 flower buds on it!

Passiflora edulis 'Frederick'

This one bloomed last year while I was out of town and mom got to see it... all plants had already been taken in for the winter...

She has bloomed several times since this and is gorgeous with those frilly little things... what are they called?.....

Passiflora racemosa

This one bloomed for the first time on 6/27/10.... it has been gorgeous ever since! Beautiful color, beautiful blooms, constantly. My Mom and I agree that the buds are almost as wonderful as the actual blooms (almost)!

supposed to be Passiflora "Artropurpurea".....

This one bloomed today.... the plant came to me with several buds on it. All of them but one fell off. I came home to find this pretty passie! It's different than what I had seen photos of what it was supposed to be. Don't get me wrong... I'm extremely happy for any blooms on any plant!!!!! Only, now, I'm curious which this one actually is!

Any suggestions?

P. morifolia

I was SO excited to see an actual bud today on one of my passies!!! I bet she'll be blooming tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest! Hopefully this is the start of many, many blooms on all my plants... very soon!!!!!

Playing around with Passie photos!

I'm going crazy wishing for spring time.... for that time just after the last frost that we can bring out all our flowers we have babied and prayed over and done any kind of vodoo we needed to that would help them overwinter indoors. For me, it's been a labor of love...
So, I've been playing around with some of last years photos... this year, I will take a gazillion of every bloom I have... so next winter, I'll never get tired of the same photos over and over!

Passiflora violetta

I'm running out of passion flower photos that I can "play" with.... I can't wait until some of my passies decide to bloom!!!!

This one isn't finished but I thought I'd post it so maybe I'll get back into my blogging!


I was looking forward to painting this zinnia because of all the different pink hues and especially the brown faded splotches!  I figured...
