Vines and Creepers by the Gate

If I would say not everything is dominated by the Passion Fruit Vine. 
Bleeding Heart seemed to be reigning champion very much earlier,
sharing together with this bougainvillea.
Of which blooms once in a while with the orange-red tones.

The Chalice Vine was growing steadily but seemed never to flower at all.
That is another ordeal of awaiting to do with patience.
I had pushed its vine upward towards the roof side.
If it grace me with flowers - it would definitely be a cascading effect.

Fire Cracker plant never seemed to go slow with its blooms.
That is a burst of flowers spanning over the stalk
Just enough to make the Sunbirds happy.

These dwells at the entrance of my gate.
Few plants - but truly giants like the Fairy Tale.
Jack and the Bean Stalk.
Only if Jack can muster some golden eggs and harp from here.

Passion Fruit Vine - Update 2

Now its official.
All of my neighbours are eyeing on them.
I had mentioned to them that I will pass it to them to taste once its ripe
and manage to pass one and only fruit few months back
when the fruiting was so rare.
Now its very much spanning to 10-15 pieces provided nothing is loss.

The good thing about having nice neighbours is that they watch over the plant.
Just in case someone come close to this one - all eyes are at them.
Now the fruits are everywhere - its going to be tedious to properly capture them in hanging nets so that they don't fall off once its ripe.

Passion Fruit Vine - Updates 1

I still can't get over it.
Each bloom is so beautiful that I still marvel over them.
The downside is their fragrance - not sweet aromatic as I expect them to be.
Nevertheless - they do produce fruits which is indeed a big deal
compared to some cultivars / species of which they rarely do.

Bleeding Heart Vine is now explosive with its blooms.
Its a prime time now and so it appear to be a big competition between this two.
The Fire Cracker plant is in her own world
careless of who does what - faithfully serving the Sunbirds
This one is a male (much more active and too quick for me to capture on camera)
Somehow this time - I was lucky.
