Very pleased, in my mind I could see them trailing up the martin house pole, and they are beginning to fulfill my vision!

My martin house has a rope to raise and lower the houses. You have to clean them a few times in the nesting season. Do you have a huge stepladder?

It comes apart at the middle and can come down for cleaning. My hubby said it will be very easy, it is his chore.

Morning Glory looks great - good job! Have you thought about planting the Moonflower (Ipomoea alba) vine along side it? That way you would have MG flowers in the day and Moonflowers throughout the evening.
