ADDING TO ANIMALS SPOTTED TODAY ;-> Meep, meep!
It has been a drizzly, rainy day today. This is the best kind of rain – it comes down slowly enough for the ground to absorb it instead of running off and doing damage somewhere.
But this morning about nine o’clock, the light was just marvelous, so I was out stalking this vine that has seemingly manifested over night. We’ve been watching it creep up the pole. This morning, there were actual flowers on it. I think they are some kind of morning glory, but not sure. They were going to sleep when I visited.
What is really strange, though, is that there is about an eight-inch gap between the fence and the crook. This determined little vine grew up in the alley, scaled the fence, and somehow managed to get its tentacles over that chasm to latch onto the crook.
How does a plant know that there is a target nearby to strive for?
The very next day . . .
This morning, the flowers were out to greet me. So pretty! ;->
