Tuesday Afternoon Flower Photo: Sweaty Passion Flower

This is a passion flower, also known as the maypop, although I think passion flower is a much better name.

I took this photo in the heat of the day, so it is interesting to me to see the droplets on the petals. I guess it is a sweaty passion flower.

Passion flowers here bloom earlier in the year.

They are symbolic of Christ's passion and there is a story about petals and stamen etc representing the apostles, can't remember all the details.

Sweaty passion however, is as far as I can remember quite a different story.
Shows you how the differences in words matter!

Here's a link to the description of the symbols of The Passion.
