Last weekend we went down to North Haven Gardens after attending the Collin County Garden Show – I had learned that they had passionflower vines in stock – and I was determined to get one. We had set up a makeshift trellis at the south end of our storage barn utilizing some leftover T-posts and a piece of livestock panel – certainly not the most fashionable work, but definitely functional. The goal was to have it covered in vines with alien-like flowers anyway!

I had been in love with passionflowers and their odd beauty – remembering a neighbor’s home down the street that had a passion vine roaming along the backyard fence. They were a definite must for adding to the landscaping here – I was thrilled to finally get some into the ground.

Today we were rewarded with blue crown passionflower (Passiflora caerulea)  blooms!

Borzoi breeder / Silken Windhound breeder R. Lynn Shell purchased her first Borzoi in 1992 (and first Silken Windhound in early 2001), then became involved in showing dogs in 1993 on a bit of a whim. Since then, her world has become "all about the dogs" and she hasn't looked back. Her husband Victor has also "gone to the dogs," having been involved in Borzoi since 1987.
