seeming to undulate

This stunning passion flower is growing in the gardens of Sunny Point Cafe in Asheville, North Carolina.  The restaurant grows much of the vegetables and herbs served in its own extensive gardens.  Scattered among the gardens are tables and chairs, children's play areas, and gorgeous flowers.

THANK YOU, Judie, for identifying this plant!

Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny, is so much fun!  This week our letter is "U." Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun! 

PS:  I have been on vacation and then catching up with myriad things.  I apologize for the length of time it's taken to visit you.  But visit you, I will!
