Morning Glory


I always plant Morning Glories around the farmette.  


Just as the weather starts to turn cooler, they seem to be at their most lush.  




These flowers are different from the Wild Morning Glories that can be found trying to over take gardens spots and landscaping beds.  



I always like seeing them curl up for their nightly rest.  




It is always enjoyable.....




until someone else.....



wants to join in on the fun.

  1. I spend a lot of time trying to get rid of morning glory (baby kudzu) and the steers love to eat them, I know they are pretty but they will eat a garden.

    1. The wild version is quite a bit of trouble. We have it as well around here!

  29. I planted morning glories a number of years ago - now I no longer have to - they replant themselves every year (including in the veggie garden).

    These are lovely - and you're right - they seem to love the cooler temps.
