passion fruit creeper

This creeper has climbed two floors high and spreading over the terrace now. The creeper has lot of flowers on it,

Lobed leaves are thick and strong.

One of the buds lit up soft light of rising sun.

Early stages of a bud blossoming into a flower. Somehow I could find a flower.

One of the fruits, still tender. It turns yellow when ripe.

The fruit has a glossy texture, the skin is neither soft nor hard. Below the skin is pulpy matter which is used for preparing a variety of food stuff. I knew it's pulp was is to make a drink by mixing it in sugared water. I heard the pulp is used as a filling for some types of chocolates.
