Literally! I looked out my kitchen window yesterday morning and saw blue where there had never been blue before. Grabbed my camera and rushed out to find my first ever morning glory. I have faithfully bought seeds each year for many years and never got them planted. This year I found a plant at a nursery, brought it home, planted it and promptly forgot. There were a number of times when I just about tore it down as it looked like a weed that commonly twines its way up the same piece of fence. Then my neighbour weed whacked along his side of the fence and part of the plant died. I gave up watching so it was with great surprise and joy that I saw the blue flower yesterday. Only one and no signs of more to come. I took pictures, although not good as the sun was behind the bloom.
I thought that I could get better ones later. So why are they called Morning Glories? When I returned later the bloom was wilting and folding up. I looked carefully again this morning but indeed nothing even close to a bloom opening was evident. There are several more buds and they look like they are a long way from opening. So I share the photos I have because I was so delighted with the new addition to my garden.
