Our garden - Passion vines and Frangipanis

After a few rainy days and cooler weather the garden is greener and the passion vine seems to have grown heaps!
A lot of beautiful purple flowers and a lot of passion-fruit already hanging from the vine. 
The only problem is part of it seems to have taken over our wall mounted clothes drying rack on the side of the house, and a lot of fruit is already hanging from there... 

I hope they leave space for me to hang my washing!

The beautifully scented frangipani is blooming too. Love the colour and the scent.
Looking forward to doing some gardening in the cooler weather this weekend.

  1. Very beautiful, the blossoms! Do you eat the fruit, too?
    Seesh. I´ll be happiest if I manage to grow more than one tiny strawberry! That was my outcome last year. One strawberry!

  2. So many fruit from your passion vines. You need shade that side, that's why the vines is covering de Wall. I believe the small white flowers from (?) will be afected. Shame. Can'you move it from that Wall?
    The frangipani flowers are beautiful. Is this one the front garden?

    Hugs.

    1. The passion vine was there before and used to give lots of fruit. Then we cut it down as it was taking over, and going into neighbours garden, and recently it started growing again. It doesn't get too much sun there...in the front garden the frangipani is white and yellow, this is a new one at the back that was given to us.

  3. Passionfruit growing on your clothes rack? Sounds very exotic! The frangipani is also beautiful!

    1. The passion vines take over everything if you're not careful...
      but they are delicious. Once they stop fruiting we'll have to give them a big "haircut" again. Thanks Sara.

  6. My passionfruit vine is refusing to flower and fruit and I have been thinking of trimming it way back. I cant think what else it needs.

    1. Last year ours was trimmed almost to death, it was so overgrown, going introduction neighbour's garden ...I really thought it was gone, but then a few months ago it started growing again and is full of fruit. So maybe you need to trim it too Gill. Good luck !

  7. Dearest Sami,
    You had me laugh out loud with your hijacked clothes line.
    Yes, those Passion vines have taken over and outnumber any of your things!
    BUT, I wish we had such fertility where we would see such an abundance of fruits.
    One can only say that your Passion Fruit does have lots of PASSION for growing vigorous.
    In Indonesia we always enjoyed the Markisa, the juice they produce from their golden passion fruits. You might know it since you're a neighboring country.
    ENJOY this abundance and have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  9. Ha what a perfect place for your passionfruit to grow, look on the bright side if it takes over completely then maybe you can forget washing day altogether? I'm afraid it looks as if you're losing the battle of the washing line at the moment, you lucky thing!! Your frangipani is gorgeous as well, it's looking super exotic with you in Perth Sami :)

    1. Thanks Wren, I agree with you! Soon I won't be doing the washing, or at least won't be able to hang it to dry where it should be drying...
      Yes, exotic fruit and flowers. Can't wait for them to ripen!

  10. Your first photo caught my eye. The foliage and fruit is so lush - almost rain forest quality! I really do wish I had your "problem" of luscious fruit growing right outside my door! Nothing grows for me except weeds and mosquitoes!

  11. The frangipani is exquisite Sami, I've just cleared a space where I'm going to plant two trees, frangipanis may be just the right choice!

  12. Great idea Grace, I have about 5 or 6 in my garden.

  13. Looks fantastic! Lucky you.
    Spring is on it's way. Funny to have colder days again now, but there are a bit of colour outside, and I look forward to even more:) Enjoy the season.
