Hicks & Remsen, NW Corner, Today

    I’ve always loved Morning Glories (how apt a name!)—I had them growing on my fire escape years ago, the vines climbing up a cable TV wire to the next floor—but haven’t planted them in a while.

    Whoever tore out this person’s plants, may you be infested with white flies for a thousand years. A heartless, hateful act.

    Here’s my photo of Morning Glories:

    I don’t see a story. Vandalism??

  • ShinyNewHandle

    I’m thinking outright theft, with possible sale to some flower shop “fence”.

    Maybe you are thinking a flower lover?
    Try rethinking it.

    No, I sensed something bad had happened to someone’s flowers. But I don’t see a report on it, only Andrew’s comment and lovely photo. Is there an article that didn’t load?

    A picture is worth a certain number of words, so the saying goes, especially an image of text.

    I thought the words on the sign were enough. Someone ripped up the gardener’s morning glories. Anything I could have added would have been superfluous.

    Nope, no image loaded to my page yesterday. Just the title, “Hicks & Remsen, NW Corner, Today”. This morning, it’s there.

    Or maybe it was a neighbor who didn’t love them quite as much as the poster thought? Morning glory is another name for the incredibly aggressive bindweed, and its tendrils can spread both above and below ground to eventually strangle other plants.

    (That said, I’m not a neighbor and am not saying this is the case in this instance — but just my first thought on seeing that the stolen plant was morning glory.)

    In other words, “What’s the story, morning glory?”
