I think I now know why they call it a passion vine. Man, does this vine have some passion! It wants to touch, fondle, and basically get initimate with anything (and anyone, I might add) in the near vicinity. It's cute but sort of annoying at the same time. Kind of like Pepe Le Pew.
And although it loves to bathe in the sun, it's decided to take a new route this year and get lovey-dovey with the light string inside the porch.
