Tiny tenacious tendril

Yesterday, on an old trellis in the front garden, I planted some morning glories. When I walked by only an hour or so later, the little vines were already wrapping around the wood and reaching toward the sky. I felt a sort of proprietary maternal pride that they already know their job so well.

    Love it! I have a little decorative trellis I got at Aldi at my front porch where morning glories are doing the same thing. As I sat there and ate my breakfast on the porch I was intrigued by the pattern of their vining, twisting ways … and thought I should take a picture of it … thanks for doing it for me and for sharing it!

    That’s amazingly fast for them to grow! I’d be proud, too.

    If you have the time, you can practically stand there and see them grow – it is why some types are considered invasive down south I suppose.
