Some toying with adding text and frames, something am not used to :P

This is, as far as my knowledge goes, a Passiflora caerulea, aka Common passion flower or Blue passion flower.

Oh, by the way, the text is based old wives tale in the town I shot it (and apparently a common belief across Europe at least). It's hard to see from this angle but on most individual passion flowers the numbers match their features (by the way, the number of apostles is ten because neither Judas nor Peter are counted).



Edited in GIMP. Contrast and saturation enhancement, unsharp mask.
