The morning glories are tackling the porch quite nicely, I must say.
I absolutely love them. I love the way they greet me when I go out to feed the cat in the morning. I love the way they curl and close later in the day. A few times a week I pull them out of other plants (today, a hosta!) and train them to climb the porch instead, and so far it's working!
Vigorous and indestructible: even the ones I transplanted (to the other side of the porch) are twining their way around the porch rails now; they're just smaller than this.
