Observations, Patterns,& Sacred Geometry

Yesterday I saw this vine flower/weed; took a picture of it, using my Iphone; then e-mailed it to myself, and now have this picture in an e-mail on my laptop. This is like nothing that I have ever seen before! I am in awe of it and would love to share this thing with the forum; not only for it's incredible uniqeness but also for its beauty and strangeness. I'm hoping that someone could identify it and tell more about it. The problem is I can't figure out how to attach it to a post? Please help. I have become obsessed with this flower/weed! I would also like to know how to get a cutting of it and transplant it, or grow them or buy one? When you zoom in on it, it only gets more incredible? Just my opinion though. Thanks.

QUOTES FROM MEMBERS --- In my veterinary opinion, pets should be fed the diet they are biologically designed to eat. Su Ba...The "redistribution" aspect is an "Urban Myth" as far as I know. I have only heard it uttered by those who do not have a food forest, and are unlikely to create one. John Polk ...Even as we sit here, wondering what to do, soil fungi are degrading the chemicals that were applied. John Elliott ... O.K., I originally came to Permies to talk about Rocket Mass Heaters RMHs, and now I have less and less time in my life, and more and more Good People to Help ! Al Lumley...I think with the right use of permie principles, most of Wyoming could be turned into a paradise. Miles Flansburg... Then you must do the pig's work. Sepp Holzer

It would be nice to have a forum where people could post thier pictures or videos in an easy manner. For the computer illiterate.

That's passiflora incarnata (passion flower or passion fruit)

It's a florida native and has lots of medicinal uses and is edible.

I have never propagated it. It comes up like a weed in my garden or anywhere else I disturb the soil and keep it wet. I know that you can collect seed and plant...you probably could do cuttings as well.

, I can't thank you enough for the information! I've had a great time this morning researching. I have found many great websites with the info that you provided. I'm left with the question, how important are wildflowers in relation to eccosystems and permaculture? Thanks once again.

Personally I think they are extremely important and I try to include as many native plants in my gardens as I can, especially native edible plants, specifically those well adapted to the locale. Finding seeds or plants can be a challenge.

When I grew nasturtiums, the bugs that usually attack my bean plants.. just spent all day everyday chilling out in the nasturtium flowers. They little pests became a pollinator and now I could look at them as the beautiful little insects they were meant to be. I dont believe insects are the destructive creatures that we have turned them into. Keeping native flowering plants brings in beneficial insects, some times turns pest into harmless sweeties, feeds butterflies (another pollinator), hummingbirds (another pollinator), birds eat the seeds. If birds are active in your area, then they are scattering your seeds for you. BTW bees, bees, bees!!!
