Good Morning, Glories. What a treat to wake up in the morning with these flowers, all of us turning our faces to the sun. These photos were taken a couple weeks ago. Some of my morning glories are still flowering while others have succumbed to the cold. I find it strange that when you plant morning glories from a seed packet, you are instructed to nick the seeds or soak them so as to help them germinate better through their very hard outer layer. My morning glories have no trouble re-seeding themselves year after year with no help from me. I let most of them grow where they land, only pulling out the ones that will take over other plants. In this first photo are my well-behaved morning glories, growing where they're supposed to.
Meandering through the alyssum
Climbing a small shepherd's hook and trailing off into the boxwood
Climbing the lilac bush
Wrapped around another shepherd's hook and vining through the Russian Sage
In and around the turtleheads
Up yet another shepherd's hook and over to check out the birdhouse
One more behaving itself, climbing a trellis
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my wandering Morning Glories. I expect my crop to be larger next year. If I'm not careful, they will soon take over my garden!
