Morning Glories

(YouTube link)

So that’s how they do it! This video shows how morning glories find and twine around any support they can. One frame was shot every ten minutes. Link -via Arbroath

Actually, and this shows my age, Flanders and Swann put out a song "Alliance" about a love affair between the clockwise spinning honeysuckle and the anti-clockwise spinning bindweed. It was a doomed relationship.

Oh my god, it doesn't work for me. What is with the rash of YouTube videos disappearing before I get to them? I know it's not my browser, because some of them do play... but it seems like most of the embedded videos I'm coming across lately get taken off YouTube before I ever see them.

That is so awesome. It makes you wonder what is the mechanism or "spark" that causes the plant to search out an object to curl around.

for some reason, this video really creeps me out.
because you look at plants as these still, non-moving things, but here's this plant, moving around, grabbing onto stuff.
still really cool though.

The prettiest of the invasive plants currently occupying Seattle. English Ivy is all that's holding my house together, though.
