~ My Passion ~

Not long ago my neighbour accidentally cut it down my passion fruit vine and I thought it would never recover. But it has actually made the plant stronger and after many many months I now have passion fruits everywhere! So all that cursing and mumbling was for nothing.
Here's what I ate this morning for breakfast!

  2. Pruning is so hard to do; sacrificing old growth to encourage new. So many things in life are like that.
    Peaceful day,

  7. Hi Simone,
    Looks yum!
    I hope our vine will fruit someday!?
    We have had no luck in SA with them.
    I know they grow very well in the
    tropics. We had a massive one in Darwin.
