I've had this potted plant for several months now; it's healthy, beautiful, and vining everywhere! All of a sudden, in the past two days, most of the leaves have fallen off! They are healthy, firm, green and just detached! the stems and blooms are healthy, firm and beautiful. Any ideas?

They will start to decline about this time of year in most places. Don't worry, though. These will come back next year.
