Morning Glories

Morning Glory

The name says it all - a truly glorious flower.  This is the flower for all of those "morning" people out there.  It is amazing how these flowers open in the morning and then disappear in the afternoon only to start over the next morning with new buds - it's almost like they have an internal clock.  The colors and the shading are heavenly, almost dream-like.  Look at the very middle of each flower - doesn't it look like there is a light bulb shining it's warmth through the flower?

Morning Glories are very easy to grow from seed and they will grow into a delicate vine.  I plant Morning Glories in between my gourds (Growing Gourds) to give my gourd plants some color.

  1. What beautiful photos! I love morning glories too. We plant them every year and they grow up a trellis in our yard.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
