I love to get out early in the morning and enjoy a walk around the back yard.....it's still cool at that time and it's the only time of the day that the Morning Glories are blooming.
I think Morning Glories are kind of a weed...lol....and I usually pull them up if I see any. This plant came up right by a trellis so I left it just to see if it woud be pretty there.
A few weeks ago (July 28) there were just a few vines on the trellis.
By August 18 it had really taken off and was in the process of taking over the bird house.....you know.....like all weeds do! .
I grow morning glories every year. I have wrought iron railing around my front porch, and they circle around them.ReplyDelete
OH I just love Morning Glories! I can see how they would be weed-like but they are just so pretty in my opinion.ReplyDelete
Good morning, Yes, I too love Morning Glories. I had 4 colors in my flower garden last few years at my prior home. I trellises for them to grow up and it was a waterfall of blooms. I started some at my new home and they have take off too. Hopefully I'll have blooms before cold weather sets in. The back patio faces South so maybe I'll get to enjoy a crop before frost. Morning Glories, 4 o'clocks, marigolds, hollyhocks are my old fashion standards for a real flower garden. Yes, I have seen the mums coming in a various places I shop. I am not ready for the change. Thanks for sharing your lovely garden.ReplyDelete
Lovely back yard. I love it when a stay flower pops into my yard in just the right place, like your morning glory. It decorated your back yard with cheerful flowers.ReplyDelete
Your yard looks lovely!! I have annuals in my back yard that look like shrubs because of the heat, humidity and all the rain that we have had.....ReplyDelete
I had some morning glory which I ended up putting in a hanging basket this year, only because I didn't have anywhere else for it to go and it's actually been really lovely. A weed is only a plant that you don't want so if it grows vigorously and you like it's a win right?ReplyDelete
Penny, your yard always is so lush and beautiful!!! The morning glory is so happy where it is at... A keeper if it'll be tamed to stay there, for sure! Neighbors at our last house in California had one morning glory across the road from us (well, up the street a bit, but I used to pass by it on my walks and when driving in and out of our neighborhood). It took over the trees!ReplyDelete
Enjoy its beauty,
