I hope you’re not getting tired of my morning glories. Please let me know if they’re driving you crazy. Although I’m sure most of you are too polite to say so, feel free to shout it out: “Kate, stop it with all the ding dang diddly morning glories!”
Of course, you know I’ll be extremely hurt. (Not really).
Today, I present to you . . .
. . . more morning glories.
They’re one of the most photogenic things in my yard at the moment.
I took these little beauties on Sunday morning, many of them in the process of unfurling.
Then later on, I took phots of them curling up, which I plan to post tomorrow.
Please try to contain your excitement. I just love these flowers, you know.
The Victorian-era Language of Flowers lists the meaning for morning glory as “love in vain”. Back in those days, one could convey their thoughts by sending a small bouquet of flowers called a tussie mussie which carried a coded meaning meant only for the recipient.
At the other end of the spectrum is the night-blooming moonflower which I plan to plant next year. Its meaning is “Joy, inspiration and hope”.
The petals will begin to fade just before they start to curl on the edges.
Sunday was beautiful here in Maryland and I wanted to get as much use out of the borrowed 105mm lens as I could.
We have four different colors of morning glories. These are the blue and white. We also have white, blue and purple, and blue.
Before I go, I just want to say that today was much better. I was surprised at how many of you had a bad day on Tuesday as well.
Tonight I’m watching another Netflix movie while my husband watches baseball. Enchanted April is playing and I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow.
As always, thanks for visiting for awhile with me here. Always a pleasure.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
