Passiflora Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Phyllis tells me that passiflora, or passion flower, is named for the passion of Christ. Religiousity aside, probably in the southern Mediterranean as well as here in Berkeley, it blooms near the solitice in the dead of winter.

Making this a very appropriate flower for me to wish you all great joy of the season, and wonder of wonders for the coming year!
