Passion fruit

Two years ago, when Kolya and I moved to this house, we received a housewarming gift of a little granadilla plant. It was about 30 cm high, and had a little card attached that said “Here is a passion fruit plant, so that your passions may bear fruit! Love Kathy and Peter.”

I procrastinated about planting it (as I often do) but eventually chose a spot next to the white gazebo structure that stands in our garden. This is where it got planted (shot is of garden a couple of weeks before I planted it).

This is what it looks like now:

And this is what’s on the table:

(32 granadillas from tree. 8 lemons from Woolies. Passion fruit cordial and curd coming soon. )

Thank you Kathy and Peter!!!
