Whispers of Blue

There was a little surprise waiting for us this morning. Can you spot it?

~Whispers of Blue~


Nature's trumpets, morning glories greet the day with happiness.








"In its first radiance I have seen
The sun! - why tarry then till comes the night?
I go my way, content that I have been
Part of the morning light!"
-Florence Earle Coates, The Morning Glory

such a refreshing name for such a beautiful flower...
I always loved the morning glories... because they made the morning feel so fresh when I was a young girl on my walk to school

I suppose Coates and I both see the sunshine in morning glories!! How glorious is that flower!! My heart skips a beat each morning I go into the garden and a blossom greets me!!
Kelli my vine is no way as full as yours! I planted it late summer as I was determined to have one and I must admit it is wrapping around everything in sight! It's worth it!
Happy morning with our glories!!

Mr. Neighbour next door would be quite envious! He has been 'fussing' all summer over his lagging morning glories and their pathetic performance. Usually they climb up his lamp post and make the most glorious showing, but this year, it has not been so! He is 90 and wooried that he won't see many more morning glories, so I understand his fussing. I'll print a picture of yours, if I may and take it over wth the next batch of cookies! He'll smile, I'm sure!

Kelli,

Thanks to you and to Nature Girl for the beautiful morning glories. Too bad they bloom so late in the season.

I also liked the poem.

How beautiful to see your morning glory!

Jennifer said...

I love morning glories, too. You've inspired me to get planting! One of my earliest memories is walking out to the back fence with my mom to see the morning glories in the morning. I called them "morning gloves." I've been partial ever since. :)
