I loves me some vines.

They actually use those tentacles to climb trees, which can cause large pumpkins to develop way off the ground – enchanting but dangerous.

Is this a BW without showy genitals? I am amazed.

That’s why sensible people give them a ladder or a sloping lattice to climb onto the roof of the garden shed. Not suitable for conventional watermelons or the biiiiig pumpkins – but fantastic for butternuts and similar sized sweet melons.

I have hops between me and my driveway.
They are out to get me.
(I know it’s not the same thing but they are all spikey-tendrilly, too.)

Very pretty! I’m with A.R, shocked by the modesty.

nice trichomes on that tendril

now if I’d looked it up first, I would have also used the terms ‘hispid’ and (heh) ‘pubescent':
nice, hispid trichomes on that pubescent tendril
25 October 2012 at 7:06 am
fuck, the tendril is hispid. The trichomes are (possibly) ‘hispidous’.
I’ll shut up.

Bippity Bobbidy BANG!

Sorry, but there’s something about tendrils that always creeps me out a little. It’s the way they grab on to things, I guess. Sort of breeching the line between plant and animal. Perhaps that’s the deep psychological meaning to what I do with pumpkins!

Nice. Anyone know if that’s a logarithmic spiral?
