Blue Morning Glory Blossom

Morning Glory, Back Yard

You may have noticed I have a thing for Morning Glories. I bought and planted a packet of seeds in the spring. I was excited when a few vines sprouted. Then, nothing. All summer long.

About two weeks ago Ted spotted one bloom at the top of the arbor. I was happy I hadn’t take the vine down. The vines grew. Then suddenly this:

For any non-gardeners, these are one day blooms that will be shriveled up by the end of the day.

We had some rain shortly after the sun came up which made some interesting patterns.

This one lagged behind opening.

The blossom itself is quite delicate, I’m not sure what caused this damage.

I do hope the plant can take a touch of frost; the weather forecast is predicting 38 F (3 C) for tonight. Not that they are ever wrong!

    1. Thanks, Donna! It turned out to be an impressive show and I’m happy to report that Monday night’s frost did not kill the plant. No sign of another frost in the long term forecast so we’ll get to enjoy this for awhile.
