Morning Glory

What's the story? My twiner no. 4 is blooming now and revealing its name this way. It's Trichterwinde in German (literally translated this would mean something like funneltwiner), a name that describes very well its most obvious characteristic features.

The blossoms look like pretty tiny gramophones, so you'd expect delicate fairies to swing in front of them listening to a low sweet melody. I found out that Morning Glory is the English name of this plant and it also fits very well, as the splendour already withers in the afternoon.

I already picked the first peas. They grew from those I used for decoration in this picture. They are so delicious!
