A Couple Shoutouts and a New Find

 I am sending virtual flowers to my friend Tom at A Hippo on the Lawn.  http://hippo-on-the-lawn.blogspot.com/  Tom has had a really rough go recently with malaria and has to be flown to England to enter hospital for a while.  If you know Tom already, you know how less than thrilled he is with this inconvenience.  If you don't know Tom, you are missing a real trip!  Hop on over and read some of his past posts and wish him a quick recovery.  There are a lot of people missing him right now.  What can I say about Tom?  There is no one quite like him!  He is a jewel.  And this comes from someone that collects rarities!

Also, if you like seeing Teddy and following her antics, please visit my friend Olly at:  http://tokyochow.blogspot.com She says her chow Bon Bon is the stubbornist chow in Tokyo.  She's lucky because Teddy is the most stubborn chow in the world.  Olly is showing gorgeous photos of the cherry blossoms in Tokyo right now.

 On another note, if you have never eaten a passion fruit, try one if you can get your hands on one. I bought one at the store yesterday, 2.00 for one passion fruit! At 50 cents a bite, it was worth every penny.  Passion fruit makes me swoon.  I wish I could get them more often.  And yes Leanne, I have major passion fruit jealousy!  Leanne grows them in her gardens in NZ.

I'll pop over to his blog after this.

And here I am complaining about stomach flu :-)

Passion fruits is somethinmg we can find here all year long and I love it :-) and I thnk we can get two for that price :-)

I wonder if You wouldn't be able to grow passionfruit when You have Your new gazebo. I think that if You have the plants in pots and just insulate those pots during winter it should work. Those seeds germinate easily and You need two plants if You want fruits.

Have a great day!
Christer.

I'm sorry for your friend. Being sick is no fun whatsoever.

I'll have to find the balsamic pearls for the hubby for Christmas.

Passion fruit does grow on vines around Hawaii. The flower is quite unusual looking. I haven't been a huge fan of the fruit, but my husband says he used to eat it as a child.

I think of you every time we collect passion fruit. Will be awesome if you can grow it for the summer. I only have one plant not two but I do want to put more plants in as we love them soo much - even Mack we have to watch him he likes to help himself.
Love Leanne

The ranunculas and balsamic cavier both look so pretty! The passion fruit doesn't look pretty to me, but if I see one, I'll try it.
