Morning Glories

A great way to start the week is to see our first Morning Glory blooms.

I'm sure I planted the blue variety, but the purple is beautiful, too.

So gorgeous!

I, too have Morning Glories planted. I did them in hanging pots this year bc I was tired of trying to untangle them from my roses. They haven't bloomed yet. I think next year I'll plant them out back where they can run free.
BTW-The purple are truly lovely. I wonder how they appeared instead of the blue?

Very pretty! I grow them every year around my mailbox. They're gorgeous!

I used to plant morning glories every year when I was a child. I think I'm going to have to remember to do that again next spring.

Have a great week!

It seems strange to hear someone say they planted a morning glory because it is an invasive plant here and seems to pop up in the least desirable places. They are pretty, though and Hummingbirds love them.

They're beautiful. I can't plant anything until this summer heat passes. I'm looking forward to having some beautiful flowers to look at instead of just the landscaping rocks. ;)

I thought they were always blue!! These are beautiful!

Jerelene said...

I'm jealous Kelli! Everyone's seems to be blooming but mine :(
I planted the blue ones too..but still no blooms. The purple ones are pretty. I think they even have red ones...the blue is my favorites!!
Have a Great Week!
Blessings..Jerelene

They are beautiful. I haven't been by in awhile, so I just wanted to stop and say hello! Hope you're having a great summer!

I love the color!

So cheerful! I wonder if the acid/ph balance in the soil is responsible for the color of the blooms? I admire that your yard looks so lush and lavish. It is a lot of work and you do it so well!

Anna said...

Gorgeous blooms! So very dainty too.

I love your morning glories! Beautiful! I enjoy your sidebar of recipes and decorating ideas as well. I wish I knew how to do this on mine but alas not that informed.

How lovely, Kelli! I remember a post like this from last year, and we also had morning glories at the time (at our old house) and your post instantly made me fall in love with a little piece of the place that we were currently trying to desperately to sell. It was a nice reminder that there's beauty in all things. Now, here we are, a year later and in our lovely new home. I still reminisce about those morning glories, though. :o) God is good.

Have a great week, mama!
