Flower Friday


Morning Glories

I love the bright, large, blue flowers. I have tried starting the seeds inside, to no avail. (Yes, I do soak them in warm water overnight.) Planting them outside usually yields only about 5 plants per seed package. Here, in the Big Piney Woods, they are slow to get started, so start blooming finally in late August. Maybe it is the cool mountain nights we have, or the lack of humidity. They are well worth the wait, though, even though the flowers are short lived.

    Those are a really pretty shade of blue. It looks like a watercolor painting.

    Oh, how pretty! There really isn't anything that can compare to flowers, is there?

    5 years ago, Mommy planted some purrty white and red striped morning glories in our back garden. She built them a chick-hen wire trellis on the fence and they grew and grew. She let the vines dry out before she pulled up the garden. to this day, there are freaking morning glories growing everywhere - in the garden, in the neighbors garden, in the grass. In the weed bucket. in a garden 3 houses away. They are like weeds if you let them go to seed. Every time she goes outside she starts screaming about the morning glories (and using most of the werds on our bad werd list).

    Mommy loves moon flowers too - they are morning glories that are pure white and bloom in the afternoon. They smell really yummy.

    Hi to our bestest furriends.

    Your morning glories are beautiful. We have a very small variety that grows all by itself along the fence at the back of the vegetable garden.

    Mum loves those flowers too. She planted some a few years ago, but not this year.

    Maybe next year!
