Happy 4th of July

Old GLory Flower Morning Glory Lovers

I finally grew the morning-glory seeds that I keep buying. Only one has bloomed so far and really it is pink (shown below). I love these flowers when planted on purpose. The insane white ones that are weeds in my front yard that go crazy and choke everything I am not a giant fan of. I am anticipating blue ones, variegated ones, and even a coffee with cream color flower. Wouldn’t it be fun if I could grow the flag one? I’d be one popular flower lady. Why do I love the morning-glory? Their leaves are hearts, the blooms only last a day, they climb, hummingbirds like them, and most of all my grandma always had them in her backyard on the trellis by the back door to her house. (I even got a tattoo of some on my back a long time ago). Anyway, I am cleaning my room (which sounds so funny. Somehow it was more fun as a kid) and as usual I have trouble not doing little distractions along the way, like photo-shopping a patriotic flag onto one of them. And now, back to cleaning, going through old stuff and listening to tunes.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday if you reside in the United States. And for all the doggies, I hope it goes by quickly for you! If you live elsewhere have a wonderful day, week, weekend….!
