Plants that are longer than they are wide

In the interests of promoting gender equality in blogs, I thought I’d dedicate a blog post to plants that are longer than they are wide. I took these photos last weekend at the Duthie Park Winter Gardens:

Any suggestions for this one?

  1. Morning Glory? (Btw – Melanie may have a number for a good psychotherapist!). I am really worried by your selection. How about some spikeless veggies!

  2. I was a poet, but didn’t know it ….

    No Satisfaction
    ——————–

    I can’t get you outta my mind
    No, not Kylie, but Melanie
    And her phallic symbols
    Longer than their wide

    Succulents large and small
    Frostbitten and morning glorious
    In cold dark Aberdeen
    Prickly amongst the stones

    Can’t get no satisfaction

  3. I have absolutely no idea of a suitable caption for that last one. I love cacti, though. Fascinating plant. I imagine the ones in Duthie Gardens are in hot houses, right?

  4. A thing is longer than it’s wide because the longest length is it’s length and the the length that is shorter than it’s longest length is it’s width unless it’s is depth or height. Sometimes it’s height or depth is it’s longest length but then that must really be it’s length. So you see what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜›
