Time for an update on the maypop (Passiflora incarnata) vines that are beautifully taking over the "gate" pergola next to the house:

There are tiny white flowers in the mix now!
The feathery foliage of a volunteer cypress vine (Ipomea quamoclit) adds so much here -- the fact that this is a white-flowered version (instead of red) makes it almost perfect!
More of the white flowers will be opening over the next few weeks which will just make it even better.
The big bees love it right now:
The vines look even better next to the large leaves of the Colocasia esculenta:
I love these vines!
