This past week most of the flowers have changed to a beautiful deep purple.

That first picture in particular really is GLORIOUS!

I have not commented in ages but I am still faithfully reading along and marvelling at your ability to savour the seasons as they come along.

Hi Kelli,

Morning glories are so pretty! Beautiful pictures too! Mine have all dried up and shriveled since we haven't had a drop of rain in about 3-4 weeks :-(

Great photos of your beautiful morning glories! There is nothing like this left in my garden. :(
But, the leaves are beginning to turn so we'll have glorious color before long.

Hi Kelli,
These are amazing photos! I love the deep rich color of the Morning Glories. My Grandmother used to have a very healthy garden of "glory" as she called it. They were beautiful to her, my Grandfather, on the other hand used to plow them up as weeds! What a funny little pair they were. Thanks for sharing!

Kathy said...

Your Morning Glories are beautiful. I've been thinking about getting some and after seeing yours it has helped me make a decision - I'm getting them.

Rambling Girl said...

Those are beautiful, Kelli!!! And, thanks for reminding me that this is the last day of September. I had no idea. (You just reminded me that I get paid today, lol).

MyJourneyBack said...

Oh Kelli they ae so pretty. I was actually just thinking about Morning Glories. I finally have a lovely fence for them to climb on. I need a tutorial on planting though. I know nothing about them!
I am going to have to come over and see your yard. All the little shots are just so pretty. I especially love your pond.
I hope you have a Blessed day.
Today I have the baby here and then the vet is coming out to check on the old horse. And I have tons of fabric to wash!
Many Blessings,
Sherry

Those are beautiful!!

On my homeschooling blog there are pictures of wild morning glories that we found on our nature walk.

I think they are so neat that they open up only in the morning. :)

Hi Kelli,

I have a wonderful story about morning glories. My parents always had morning glories around the house growing up. When my father passed away three years ago I had a dream that he came to visit me. The dream was black and white...but he had come and offered me a bouquet of flowers and only one flower was in color in the bouquet and that was the morning glory. :) I remember it being so vibrant! I felt content after that dream...and happy my father had come to visit me. :)

Thank you for bringing up that memory. :)

crystal said...

What beautiful pictures. I am sure the flowers are very pretty in person. Believe it or not, my Irises bloomed again a couple of weeks ago. Of course they are gone now but it was pretty while they lasted.

I wake my girls up by calling them Morning Glories.

They always remind me of the song:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.
His mercies never come to an end;
They are new every morning, new every morning.
Great is Thy faithfulness, O Lord.

Lady Katherine said...

The morning glories are beautiful! Colors are lovely. On my sister's birthday,I always say Morning Glory. Her name is Gloria, but I have always called her Glory since childhood. My husband still plows up the morning glories, as weeds. I usually save a few. But they grow wild on our 10 acres. So I guess we are like Deb's grandparents!

Sharon said...

Beautiful pictures! I love morning glories. One year we planted them in front so they would grow up the front posts of our porch. It was beautiful, but very messy as the spent flowers would fall onto the concrete porch floor and I felt like I was constantly sweeping them up. We didn't put them there anymore. ;-)

Susie said...

I love how they turn from one shade to another! They are beautiful are look so summery. Hard to believe tomorrow will be Oct!

Pattie said...

Thats it! I HAVE to have morning glories next year. They are beautiful and I like how they have changed with the season too.

Your camera takes such wonderful pictures. The flowers are beautiful. It's still in the 80's here and things are still blooming.

My garden is flowering madly and showing no sign of slow down.

Wonderful pictures.

Mine don't care that it is almost October either, but I am afraid with this cool down that they might start caring! I love their rich color and big blooms. I will miss them.
