First bloom of 2006

Yes, I'm obsessive over passion flowers. Just how obsessive will become apparent in a future entry. But there's just something special about that first bloom of the spring, that compels me to share it with you:

This is my passionflower "Incense," a hybrid planted in front of my house. No matter how many times I see the flowers, they always stop me in their tracks with their showy beauty. And this pic doesn't do it justice--there's a kind of magenta glow to the flower that's washed out in the pic. Simply stunning. Hopefully, some of the other passiflora species I have planted here and there will start flowering before long.
