bindweed on the meeting rail

Sounds like a good title for a poem: Bindweed on the Meeting Rail.  There's a metaphor in there somewhere. Anyway.... I've put bindweed in a bottle and displayed it on the meeting rail of the windowframe, where it can trail, before, but I've never had such a nice, long bindweed vine to display before. This one is just gorgeous, and much better here in the house than smothering one of my shrubs outside! Beware when pulling it off plants--it is as strong as heavy-gauge wire and will break plant, shrub, and tree stems before it breaks itself. It lasts a really long time in a vase and looks great in arrangements, though.
