Last saturday, Mum gave me a "Mina lobata" (Mexican firecracker, aka "ipomoea lobata") vine seedling. Since seeing one in their garden, it has become one of my favourite plants, and it crops up in my art all over the place, examples:
...in Mirii's hair
...being carried by the little green bird.
It was only a couple of inches tall when she gave me it - short enough to fit inside a sandwich bag with its pot, with room to spare...
...the little seedling has subsequently grown about two feet in the last week. ¬_¬ It has also latched onto the pinks in the kitchen windowsill and is using them as a frame to climb up.
I have called it "Thundercracker" (come on, how could I *not*) and am hoping he survives when he gets out on the balcony.
...I dream to think what I'm going to find when I get home. I can't be continually unwinding him off stuff XD.
