Invasive, Beautiful, Bland.

This Invades the garden and appears indiscriminately. I was told by several people to expect Banana passion fruit, but No. The best I can ascertain it is actually a Blue Passion Flower . 

This vine entwined with roses and Chinese Star jasmine, overhanging pathways and making a nuisance of itself.
The flowers are oh So pretty and intricate.
The ripe fruit is Orange, the shell is soft like citrus, the flesh is red and the taste bland and sweet with no tang of true passion fruit.

These two are always together but I can never get a picture with them both in it.

Hidden Treasure

If you stand close to the edge of the bed and look in you will spy it.
