Morning Glory

Note to self: next time, invest in the sparkly, bright red manicure after the yard work is done! A few hours in the yard were worth a few chips in the polish, though. Besides yanking weeds, I planted sunflower seeds and some more morning glory seeds, in blue and in purple.

Some of the blue morning glory seeds I planted not long ago have already started vining and seeking something to wind around, so I twist-tied the longest vine to the porch railing. I checked it this morning, and it caught on like a pro, whipping a few times around the railing already. I actually smiled and clapped, luckily not in the line of sight of any neighbors who would wonder what on earth I was clapping about as I peered at my porch railing in the early morning.

I absolutely love plants. Every new leaf, every burst of growth, is so beautiful. And when these vines sport their first flowers? Forget it. I’m sending out birth announcements and cigars.

    I love blue flowers. You always expect flowers to be bright colors and I guess the blue flower is a rebel.

  2. I love morning glories!!!! When I lived in El Paso, I could grow them like a pro. However, I don’t see them out here in San Diego very often. Maybe the weather isn’t right here. Plants make me happy. 😉

  3. They’re a favourite of mine too. Enjoy the garden, a rare oasis of tranquility in the sandstorm of life 🙂

    **claps too!**I love my plants too. It’s the only part of my life I have some control over, and I am so blessed by their blooms.

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
