A photo Quiz. Yes, it is passion flower !!

Enough is enough!

Beware !!!
Your little grey cells are getting rusted !!!

It is believed that if you don't use your grey cells in your brain, it starts to disintegrate with time.
I don't like that to happen to any one of you.

Here is a photoquiz for you.

It is so easy.
What you have to do is to recoganize the flower shown here.

According to the latest world botanical chart, It is considered, one among the sixteen most exotic flowers in the world.

A clue ?
Of course I can give you one.

This is a tropical flower with a curious name, that is related to one of our emotions or moods.

You have 24 hours to answer.

As most you have surmised, it is a passion flower which turns out a bit sour but delicious fruits ... that too from my backyard.

Last two years, this creeper was in some kind of meditation, no flowers and no fruits.

But this year it has compensated me with plenty, even during the drenching rain.
See it's evolution through my pictures.

Thanks for all who participated...shows that your grey cells are still very potent. LOL

starry nights said...

I looked and I looked
I scanned through books

November Rain said...

I dont know what it is called but its beautiful

Rose said...

Passion.. the emotion that made the great leaders of our times great.. the emotion that makes one weak to dance to the tune of one's heart..

The feeling that reveals the Pain of love.. Ecstacy of grief.. Sanctity of hatred and dubiety of happiness..

It has to be the PASSION FLOWER.. but i gues the gold medal is already won..

Mindinside said...

So you eat the passion fruit?
Is it tender or crisp inside?

jac said...


If you will give your mail ID, I will post you a picture of split ripe passion fruit.

We eat the inside which is pulpy and coloured flame yellow with black seeds.

Walker said...

Nice flower Jac.
I like plants and I have a house full.
I am now growing fruit trees in the house mostly for the blossoms.

aklanta said...

jac said...


jac said...

jac said...


You too are good in imagination; in fact you have a flair for visulising which is evident from your pics.

Walker said...

Hi Jac,

Long time wanted to ask you this. But always forget.

Since you have a garden and then food and a cook (ah! im soo jealous when I hear that)

Are you intrested in taking part in the Green Blog Project?

Anonymous said...

Here are some links that I believe will be interested

jac said...

Is it growing ?
(By that, do you mean a stem or a branch ?)

jac said...

ingi penne !

1) The garden is mine
2) Though the cook is not mine, I can use him when ever I have a recipe.
3) We have a facility that caters a multinational cuisine and it is a privilege to have a choice on any type of food.
4) What is a green blog project?
5) Will it eat up my time?

If you prefer to use my mail ID, you have my assurance that I will not misuse it.

I believe that good cooking is an art and a gift from God.
