Not only had the vine climbed its way up the trunk and into the branches, it had also sprawled across the ground and into the road.
I couldn't pass up such an opportunity to take home a snippet so I pulled over, took out my clippers (gardening tip: always keep an extra pair of clippers in the car for just such occasions) and lopped off about a foot-long section to transplant.
It's too bad I missed the blooming but from the number of spent blossoms hanging from the vines, I can only imagine how spectacular it must have looked late at night when the flowers opened.
