Bailey has been growing a morning glory at school and during summer vacation he had to bring it home. While we were in the States, SIL and her family looked after it. They did a good job, but it has been such a hot, unrelenting summer here that when it finally come back to us, it was looking a little worse for the wear. So began the revitalization effort- with thrice a day waterings and a few blasts with the water gun when the kids thought nobody was looking.
By the time last Sunday rolled around and it was time to take it back to school it was looking pretty ok. Bailey says it is still hanging on, but I wonder how much damage the typhoon (actually, I think it was downgraded to a tropical storm) has done to it. Guess we will see tomorrow.
Anyway, I got used to having the morning glory around and kinda missed it once it was gone. So, I got two new plants today. I have tried to grow plants before, but despite my best efforts they usually wilt, wither and die. Here's hoping I have better luck this time!
