I doubt if you do eat this variety of Morning Glory:
The title of the post isn't as daft as it might seem either. Len and I go to Thailand quite often and over there they have a variety of Morning Glory which grows in water. The green parts of the plant make a gorgeous accompaniment (today's big word!) to a Thai meal - stir-fried with something like oyster sauce. Yummy!
It looks like the weather is changing a bit here in Southern Spain - within the past hour or so, from being like a mill pond, the sea is getting rougher and clouds are gathering. Good job that tomorrow is planned as just a 'mooching around' day and the dreaded packing of course, ready for an early flight on Tuesday. But we've been really lucky with the weather so far so absolutely no complaints on that score!
Shops here, especially the supermarkets, are full of Christmas goodies. You certainly can have a good traditional Christmas - decorations, lights, baubles, artificial trees galore, mincemeat, mince pies, Christmas puddings, crackers - the works! But something I haven't seen at home and absolutely love are little dried whole figs, just a dainty-ish mouthful - really delicious. With luck there'll be a chance to buy some more to take home.....I ate the box we bought already! Err, now I remember why our Mums used to give us Syrup of Figs!! :((
