I couldn't resist showing you what I found blooming this morning:
It's a red passion vine flower (dwarf pittosporum in front). Isn't it breathtaking?! The vine only blooms in spring and the flowers only last a day, but it holds my position of favorite in the yard. These are rare plants. I found mine at the Mercer Arboretum & Botanical Gardens annual plant sale that I go to every year with my sister. If you live anywhere near the Houston area and like plants, I strongly recommend this place.
