I think looking back to my dragonfruit I'm of opinion got knocked off my troupe of scrub turkets that use boundary fence to hop into neighbours. Certainly explains lack of lucious colour I see in yours. Thanks for your post @Sussanah

@jeatacake I was very proud. Took 10 years to fruit following neglect. It’s prickly too. Flower doesn’t last long.

@brightcolours can't deal with toads and algae any longer. Got dude round today for a quote to turn back to blue. The children 17 and 22 are ready to use it again. And me too now the freak next door has moved out. The entire time he lived there 4 yrs he would just stand and watch me in pool from his veranda. Plus a whole range of other stalking tactics. The mock orange hedge is blocking any view from next door now.

How dreadful!!!! You must have been so happy when he moved out. (I've been stalked... Awfully unsettling experience).

@brightcolours I was very happy. He continued for years afterwards but I never engaged him so that's when he turned to his wife and kids hopefully.
