Godzilla flower

With the coming of the rainy season in Florida the passion vines that I planted are really starting to grow rapidly.   That is them growing right up the center of the trellis.

Hopefully they will bloom with some beautiful flowers.   I don't know how they can consider this plant as a roadside weed.

The passion vine that I have was started as a cutting from a larger vine.   I used a rooting hormone to help it develop roots.

It worked great.   The cutting sprouted both roots and leaves.

It has that characteristic three bladed leaf.   And I can't tell you why but it reminds me of the Godzilla footprint from the remake of the movie starring Matthew Broderick.

Evidently the scene for the movie was filmed on the Kualoa ranch in Hawaii.

And the footprint for the movie is still there and has now become a tourist attraction.

Seeing the Godzilla footprint in person would make a good excuse for visiting Hawaii.   I have never been to Hawaii but living here in Florida is pretty similar.    Plus we have DisneyWorld here in Orlando, Florida.   Is there a Disney World in Hawaii?   I don't think so.
By the way, the small white flowers in the background are from the jasmine vine which is also growing up the trellis. Check back from time to time to see the beautiful flowers when they bloom.
By the way, how did I do on tying the passion flower to Godzilla?


Have a terrific day.     Lew
