Tendrils of markisa / passion fruits

Growing markisa is fun in itself.  We can never miss the sight of tendrils. These are little fingers of markisa. They grab on objects , circle and hold. To allow sway or movements either imposed by the weight of fruits or the gust of strong winds, tendrils has springs. They are very flexible.
