Beautiful Flower!!! Very unique. Good to see the sun shining for Rudey.

♥ Braja said...

That looks like a passionfruit flower....is it? Shall we call him Marcel? :)

Mango Girl said...

I love the passion flower. I hate to say it took over my backyard and I had to kill it (it was killing all my other plants). Apparently Passion vines have 9 lives...it keeps coming back.

darsden said...

Hit 40-thank you...NO, it's raining but Otin was over the Rudey dog for a while she was scaring him.LOL

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

That is beautiful Dar! I've never seen one before. Iknow I know I didn't get past N.O. until 4 years ago. :(

darsden said...

Braja-isn't she beautiful, this is a lovely name I love it. It is actually at my sister's house when I was babysitting the 3 girls I jump outside to take some pictures of it. Thank you!

darsden said...

Christ! I logged onto the FTD site again!!! LMFAO! On a more serious note, they are really excellent pictures!

Reddirt Woman said...

Your sister's passionflower is a beauty. I love them. They look so delicate but they are tough little buggers. Thank you for showing us a wonderfully colored one.

Beautiful flowers for the end of the season.

Pastor Sharon said...

Darsden, the beauties you captured here are an incredible Sunday treat!
Each detail of this flower makes it look like the beauty of a hairstyle for a princess. I think we should call it Princess Marcel. Heck, I may have to pirate these photos and try to paint them.

darsden said...

Lisa- thank you very much.

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-thank you kindly. "Aim to please."
Paint a Princess Marcel sounds like a Plan :-)

Heidi said...

Wow, that flower is amazing.

Brian Miller said...

Gaston Studio said...

OMG Dar, I need to visit your fantastic flowers; it must be like living in a famous botanical garden!

Today am announcing a FUN giveaway thingie on my post which will begin next Monday... come visit and see what I'm talking about!

Gaston Studio said...

Forgot to tell you that I left something for you on this post too!

Medora said...

Pretty pretty!

Michel said...

why does braja get to name the flowers!!?!?! I wanted to name that guy Leopold.

I got dibs on the next flower!

Medora said...

BTW, the Bugles car is the 33, DUH, not the 24 - can't you read numbers? Clint Bowyer is way better than your old Jeff Gordon, and he has a cuter butt, too. So there.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Beautiful except for that pesky bee...hornet....wasp..thingy. Eww.
