(Entry #9) Some sort of disease that affects especially nightshades. I have not been able to identify it. Little gray spots cover the leaves, and in some cases decrease the quality of the leaf formed. Overall the plant just really doesn't do well.
It is known to affect most nightshades, purple passionflower, and some other specimens. I have not observed it affecting trees.
(Entry #8) Passiflora incarnata. Known as maypop due to the fact that when you step on the fruits, they will pop. Meaning it should have been willpop. Yet it was not. The flower is squiggly and purple, and basically very distinctive. The purple is not always too deep. The fruit is green, and supposedly when ripe orange; yet none has ever made it to that stage under my supervision. And it's called supervision because my vision is super.
The leaf is... a dinosaur foot. It is green. This is due to chemicals that make plants green. It is a vine. I believe technically it is not a vine and it is a crawler; this simply means it does not climb up things as much as... things that climb up things. This is not strict, they will still climb a little.
The yellow passionflower is back! I missed it last time, somehow. Blame the donkeys. It's a baby, and has no flowers. Maybe it will! Last year I observed it, and I think passionflowers are supposed to bloom on their second year. That may have just been the purple passionflower, though.
Don't be tricked, though. The yellow passionflower looks quite like a relative of a saw green-brier. But I have risked fingers to make sure that it had no thorns. There are no thorns. I say saw green-brier because I've never seen another type.
Also, someone else has confirmed it as a yellow passionflower, so pretty sure, now.
Goodbye. No more Turkish for now. Don't eat children. It's wrong.
I like observing animals, especially birds. I also take care of the goats. I like goats.
My assistant photographer! She also takes care of African geese.
Another assistant photographer! She takes care of the rabbits, and the hutch is teeming with crawly things.
