The passionflower vines in Bent Tree are loaded with fruit right now (see photo below). They’re called Maypops because they “may pop” if you step on them. It’s a good childhood memory. The photo above was taken this summer and shows a couple of bees on the flowers. When a bee goes for the nectar in the center of the flower, its back brushes on the anthers and gets coated with pollen.
