ABC Wednesday: M is for morning glory

Marvelous Magnificent Morning Glory

Morning glories don't bloom until late summer here so I had to go to my photo archives.

I love morning glories but they can be invasive.

It was hard to decide which summer shots to use as I've photographed them a lot.

I decided to try and show some of the different varieties that spring up in my yard.

I have more of the purplish ones than the other varieties.

The vine below was climbing around my roses so eventually I had to remove it.

The next one had a visitor.

The last variety has smaller flowers than the others but larger leaves.

I didn't realize there were so many varieties of Morning Glories.
I really love the deep purple with the pinkish throats.

Carver, we had morning glory all over our fence out back. I'd get up early and sit with coffee, huddled under a blanket with a good book, waiting for the shy little deep blues to show their faces. Thank you for a beautiful memory.

Also, the articulation on that bug was amazing. You are so talented! Amy
