159/365 Passionflower

Passionflowers have always intrigued me. They are so beautiful and also functional for teas and medicinal uses. I've also heard that they represent Jesus' passion: the 3 stamen represent his wounds and the 12 petals represent his 12 disciples (this flower only has 10 petals; maybe the final 2 have not opened, or perhaps they are behind the other petals).
