Keith,

Lovely combo.

Do you allow it to vine on something (I'm imagining you making a diamond trellis out of clay)?

Jeff,
If you look close there is a branch I placed in the pot for the vines to cling to

Aftermidnight, I've seen many other plants this nice. His other ones. The reflection of this plant in the pot is genius. Growing a collection of caudices is beyond that.

Jeff, I imagined a clay lace backdrop for the vine. The vine would grow in perfect, even twirls. The holes in the lace are heart-shaped, reflecting the leaves.
You gonna work on that, Keith? ;)

Pete,

The breeze winds through the heart-shaped holes, as a longing for plants free of pest is moaned, accompanied by a harp plucked plaintively? That one?

Plaintive harps. Must be the Irish wind moaning, and a Celtic lass plucking.
