Passion Is No Ordinary Word (Ain't Manufactured....)

During a lunch-time walk this week, I came across a really WILD looking wildflower:

I'm no botanist, I had no clue what it was.  But, hey, this is the 21st centrury, we have Google!  So I did an image search on "wildflower crazy purple".  And scrolling through the results I found: Purple Passion Flower.  Also known as Maypop or Ocoee.  And it is the "State Flower" of Tennessee. 

So I learned something today....

Meanwhile, the title is from the Graham Parker song, from the album "Squeezing Out Sparks".
