While searching the internet, I found a picture of a Blue Passion Flower - the uniqueness and complexity of this flower immediately caught my attention.  It quickly became obvious, however, that this would be a different kind of challenge from other flowers I have folded - this flower is arranged, for the most part, in rings of five with two exceptions.  The middle ring of many fine strands is not, but my model represents it with ten thin points (I chose ten since it is a multiple of five, helping to simplify what was obviously going to be an extremely complex model).  The top-most set, however, consists of three points - overcoming this mis-match with the rings of five made this the strangest crease pattern I have created to date.
