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!

That was my favorite part about when Branden was an ichinensei. The morning glories that all the kids brought home. Count how many flower petals each day etc. It was so sweet. It's definitely not Bailey's fault this Summer was such a record breaker. The heat must have done a number on everyone's morning glories this year.: ( So not to worry. On the bright side, it must be quite a tough little morning glory, to have endured this heat and now a typhoon or even a topical storm. ; )
