They Destroyed the Passion!

I noticed yesterday evening that there was a magnificent passion flower bush just up the road from here and resolved to wander up tonight and take some photographs of it.

When I did so, I found that they had cropped the bloody thing right back and hacked off virtually every flower on it. So rather than have another blank posting day, I'd just snap a few of the gardens around it.

Don't blame me, blame the aesthetically challenged folk from up the road.

So my Tourette's has been a bit less problematic the last few days but I'm still quite hyper and restless. I have an entire free weekend upcoming and I intend to be a bit more productive than I am now - I am currently watching "Moonraker" on ITV4.

  1. Possibly the right? time to crop it back so it re flourishes? There are some strange rules re pruning which always confuse me.

  2. What a shame about the passion flowers being hacked back. We have one in the garden but it has never flowered. Love the hanging baskets - so colourful :)

  3. Sod's law. Often see something I'd like to photograph when I don't have my camera with me.

  4. Those Petunias in the hanging basket look superb. Mine died off as a result of the hot weather, well, that and me forgetting to water them!

  5. Thank you all, will keep searching for good stuff for you

  6. That reminded me I haven't noticed the two passion flower plants I usually see around the village.
