Beautiful Mystery - or - Botanical Mistress

This is my favorite flower.
Where I’m from, this is called Passion Vine.
Where I’m from, this doesn’t grow, doesn't bloom, doesn't survive the winter.
Where I'm from, it is sold fully grown on iron trestles.
I used to sell this plant to rich people with excessive gardens that they didn't tend.
I was always sad to send one off to it's doom.
Where Passion Vine is from, it is considered a weed.
I want to go there and try to find a flower I'd like more.
Maybe next week.

  1. Uh, where I'm from that flower is called Morphinus Hallucinatus. But yeah, nothing lives forever.
