Passionflower

Passionflower has been used as a calming herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. 


My husband and I were on a walk this weekend when we saw this vine that had exploded all over the chain link fence. We had to stop and look at it. It was sooooo beautiful. I snapped a few photos and when we stopped at Portland Nursery, I asked what flower it was.

"Passionflower," the clerk said pointing to his shirt.

Yep, a passionflower was printed on the front of his jersey.

Serendipitous.

I like the little color change from white to what looks like purple-ish.

PS: Down 3.4 this week.
