    Really nice tour, Paul, thanks for sharing!
    I think the red flower (9. & 10. picture) is Zygia lehmannii. I saw many of them in Colombia.

    BORING ? Came on,Paul!
    Paul, passion flower is a flower quite common in my country. In a market where people buy flowers and make money from it yesterday I saw an old lady exactly selling something. The price would be about $ 5. Can you believe? From florists cost more, about 10.If you dont belive I can post the pictures on a market place !
    Paul I like all you posts here,and all posts of my friends on this site !Tkanks to all!
