Purple Passion

Uploaded: March 03, 2004


This is a shot of a passion flower bloom taken in my home state of Alabama in June 2003. I grew up calling this plant a "may pop," a common name for it in Alabama, where it grows as and like a weed. The "may pop" may have come from the fact that the fruit of the plant (a green egg-shaped pod) may POP if you smash it hard and fast enough with your hand and or foot. We also ate the ripened fruit later in the year. Auto settings; tripod; flash.
