It's November's last day, but I still have a bit of summer in my kitchen.
When my stubborn, spoiled morning glory vines wouldn't bloom,
I searched for answers.
One helpful gardener noted that she cut almost-blooming
vines to bring indoors. Contained in a vase and
positioned in a sunny window--they bloomed.
Of course, I had to try this.
From my pile of Heavenly Blue vines, I trimmed a long tangle
covered with buds still tight and tiny. They fit easily in a
glass vase and hung happily from a cup hook in the window sill.
In no time at all, pointed swirls of bloom emerged and finally opened.
Every morning, newly vibrant blooms greet me.
It's been the highlight of a fairly dismal gardening season.
