Pagan Eye: Passion Flower on a Garden Wall

I saw the passion flower growing on a garden wall. Passion flowers are climbing plants with exotic looking blooms that like sheltered, sunny spots.

According to Cunningham's Encyclopaedia of Magical Herbs, the flowers are associated with Venus, which isn't surprising. However, the book also says: "Contrary to its name, the passion flower is placed in the house to calm problems and troubles, and to bring peace."

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it - a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
