Doesn't sound too menacing, does it? I mean come on, MORNING GLORIES? Attacking? They are happy sun loving plants, right? They don't attack anything, do they?
... Or DO they?
Cue dun dun dun shark attack type music here.
Our morning glory plant in the front flower bed that we got on clearance last summer for $6.00 survived the winter frost and has ever since been spreading its morning gloriness all over the trellis that we bought especially for its morning glory self. Spreading and spreading. But, I think it has ulterior motives behind its glorious spreading, like wrapping itself around us and slowly slowly squeezing us to death. But, then who would water it? Oh, yeah, the sprinklers are AUTOMATIC so squeeze away!
It's really kind of creepy how fast its little tendrils grow.
Looks perfectly innocent, doesn't it. Big beautiful glorious flowers. But don't be fooled by its innocence and beauty. Those tendrils are out to get you.
Seriously, I'm afraid to get too close to it.
They'll grab onto your ankles and suck you in.
This tendril was only up to the line in the sidewalk yesterday.
And this one is headed towards the door, where it will creep into the house, down the hallway...
AND INTO YOUR BED WHILE YOU ARE SLEEPING!!!
Maybe we should have one of the cats guard the door for us.
