A strange flower in a garden devoid of flora

Strange Flower

Whilst out in the garden I was surprised to find this. Surprised mostly because our garden is utterly devoid of Flora with the exception of our neighbours Ivy and some weedy grass. No idea what kind of flower it is and never have I seen one like it before. The Stamen are shaped like some sort of Alien Helicopter and the flies seem to like it, as do the gnats. Otherwise it was just there, on it’s own

Recorded for posterity with the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 with a 12mm Kenko Extention tube attached.

  1. Passion flower. Seed possibly arrived in bird droppings as I have a honeysuckle this way. My neighbour has passion flower but as they like the sun it has come through fence and I get benefit of a lot of flowers. Given a good summer has a small orange coloured fruit (not sure about the eating!)

    1. Cheers Eric,
      Much appreciated and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. If I can find someone daft enough to test the fruit if and when it develops I’ll let you know what it tastes like.
      Best regards
      Dave
