Kudzu in bloom

It's pretty hard to live in the South and not know about kudzu. It grew in the ditch by my grandfather's house, and one of my daily chores was to run the tractor and disk between the field and that ditch to keep the kudzu out of the corn.

However, not once did I ever see the kudzu in bloom. That's probably because I never got all that close, what with the vines harboring snakes, or so people told me.

So today, I went to find the flower we smelled yesterday but didn't find. Little blue petals were all in the grass, but it took some looking to finally find the blooms.

I was astounded to see the blooms on the kudzu. It only took me 56 years to learn that. I really must be a slow learner.
