Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Passion Flower



I'm not much of a gardener but one plant I am proud of is my passion flower which I have had for years and years. It is named after the Passion of Christ and various parts of the flower are said to be symbolic of the last few days of Christ's life.

  5. I've never seen one. It looks like it was designed by a very artistic architect.

  11. I think I have never seen such a flower. I prefer to sit in the garden then do garden work. I really have no green thumb !

  13. We see a similar flower in Florida, but I had never heard the legend ... next winter I'll take a closer look at "ours" (in the public gardens, as you know I don't garden at all).
