Purple Passion Flower
I have had this potted flower for years. I bring it in for the winter and when our weather has leveled out a bit, I put it outside, where it goes absolutely crazy! The plant fills with very large buds. Once the bud blooms, the flower lasts for only one day. They are such a treat and truly spectacular!
I love spring. I love watching trees slowly budding and perennial flowers push through the bit of snow that's left. I love the longer days and the promise of warm weather to come. I love that soon, I will be sitting on the deck, sipping a mai thai, Killians red, or a delicious margarita with fresh lime. I love doing so with good friends. I love flip flops. I love bare feet in lush grass. I love the sprinkler in the back yard and little ones running through it. I love watching all the birds gather around for a nice drink or to pluck a worm out of the wet soil. I love our deck filled with potted plants and gorgeous flowers. I love to watch the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds enjoying the beautiful flowers.
Want to know what I love best about spring and summer? I love cooking and eating outside. I love to entertain while the grill is smoking. This can be very easy. I do so many simple and delicious foods on the grill. From appetizers to dessert, look forward to many ideas, tips, and recipes to come.
Spring. A new beginning. You are going to do so many new things in your kitchen and on your grill. I can't wait!!
Have a great day!
