Keith,

Lovely combo.

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

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.
