Passion Fruit

Appropriately these flowers are currently blooming in my garden at home, and for no other reason than they are linked to Easter by their name, and for their sheer beauty, I thought I'd share them with you all here.

And here's the info as to why it's so called...

It is said that the Passion Fruit was named by the 16th century Spanish Catholic Missionaries in the Amazon region of Brazil. They called it “flor passionis” (passion flower) or “flor de las cinco llagas” (flower of the five wounds) after its purple flower which they believed resembled the five wounds of Christ.
