Mention of Passion Flowers always reminds me of a hillside village in Tuscany called Monteriggioni. A typical Tuscan village.town on the top of a hill, built for the summer breeze to keep the village and vinyards cool `down below`.
The surrounding walls of the village in summer are covered in Passiflora and what a wonderful sight it is. If you can go there, there is a fabulous long view across the vinyards of Chianti Country looking towards Sienna. What a place!!
The weather, limited rain, much sun and warm long days - a bit like what we are having not but they have EVERY year.
