Just a quick note. It's a morning glory. Here in California things don't die off. I think I read somewhere that some areas around here have passed laws not to plant these things. I know my neighbors would like to have me arrested at this point. This is an actual picture from our poor garden. There is a wall under there and a passion flower.
oceanblue morning glory
Native to Florida
Oceanblue morning glory is just one of many (about 25) native and non-native morning glory vines in Florida (Wunderlin, 1998).It is a frequent native vine of disturbed sites throughout the state. It blooms all year. Oceanblue morning glory is located in AL, CA, FL, HI, LA, TX, and PR (Kartesz, 1999).
Ours actually don't bloom in the winter or grow too much. But they don't die off either.
I'm actually typing right now from underneath this vine. No, I'm not.
By tomorrow I will be.
I forgot to mention that this thing has actually grown into the house on several occasions. It's in the bathroom and the hallway. It came right through the roof. Once it came in through the bathroom window. (Didn't anybody tell you?)
Two more things:
1. We're having a big Mary sale for the whole month of May in our shop.
We'll be adding items every day!
2. If you get a moment, please drop by the Blogger's Choice Awards and cast your vote! You'll find lots of other reading material there, too.
We didn't know we were so competitive. Now Sister St. Aloysius is following our progress like a dog with a bone. Actually, more like a cat with a bug. A little fluttery bug. Perhaps she'll reward our voters with her brownie recipe.
Or perhaps I will....I found the book from whence it came.
Here is the poor buried passion flower being murdered by the morning glory. Plant violence is so quiet.
