A long time friend (thanks Theo!!) just reminded me about our apartment gardening days. Between moving and starting new jobs we lived in different apartments for the first ten years we were married. The gardening bug bit when we moved to Charlottesville, Virginia. I thought I'd start with a few simple morning glories and was shocked when they took off to the second floor.

I thought I'd give them a whirl again when we moved to North Carolina. The balcony went wild! Morning Glories, Moonflowers, and Thunbergia.
You could spot our apartment out of all of them in the compound. People would be walking along the sidewalk and would stop and call up to the balcony to say hello! We love chatting to who ever came by. I don't have much luck with the morning glories here. I think they miss they sun, heat and humidity of the south.
