Those lyrics are from an old Nick Drake song that I was listening to while editing one of the photos on this post. Actually, I was listening to much of the Garden State soundtrack which also includes an old tune from Simon & Garfunkle that I love.
Yesterday I found some volunteer morning glories growing up one of the old bushes on the property. Long-time readers of this blog may remember that my husband would plant morning glories and moonflowers every year along one side of the garden fence line. My husband was the gardener here, not me. And although I know a little about vegetable gardening, and have had them in the past, I just don’t have the time for it right now. So no garden this year. No garden last year either.
But it sure was a nice surprise to see those morning glories yesterday evening . . .
It was growing dusk, but I upped the ISO and managed to capture a couple of pretty images.
I love when they look like this.
And climbing vines.
And a little hummer thrown in for good measure.

That’s all I’ve got for today, folks.
I’ll try and post something else on the weekend ~
Hope you enjoy yours!
Messengers of the ineffable;
Ineffable message beautifully delivered.

Lovely!!!! Simon and Garfunkel...oh the memories!!!
I can almost hear your music in my mind. The pictures are lovely, and the humming bird...awesome.
No matter how you are feeling, CG, your posts are always filled with hope and promise.
I have learned much from you.
Perhaps YOU are about to unfurl? [sorry, couldn't resist ...]
p.s. "Hi George"
Don't do my blog anymore but I do look on my favorite blogs..
I love morning glories..Hummers just love a drink from these flowers.. I have several hummingbirds and they are so fun to watch..
Just love all your pictures~!
One more day and you can enjoy your 2 days off from school.
ta ta for now from Iowa:)
I always enjoy popping in to see your latest camera captures. They always make me smile. I hope you have a great weekend, girlfriend.
I do remember your husband planting morning glories! A little message of hope, of love, of remembrance, perhaps?
Last post, it was 'mourning (dove)', and now---in 3 days --- you've jumped to 'morning (glory)'. Hmmm, how very interesting---truly glorious, too!
I surely love this blog. :)
Lovely post. Enjoy your weekend.
i still miss my morning glories, i always had the heavenly blue ones .. the begonias this summer are looking less like they'll be blooming til October as they did last year .. and i am always glad when i see you pop up in my email xo
Beautiful, love the hummer.
Oh your flowers are such a DELIGHT - and your hummer is Exquisite!!! Hope your Weekend is Wonderful!!
I love that intense purple of the morning glory - we really can't grow them this far North in the UK sadly.
Kate, these photographs are just beautiful!
Have a great weekend.
Simply beautiful <3
Beautiful pictures and reminders that the power of love never dies. Tender taps on the shoulder like these must be so welcomed.
Beautiful, beautiful! Oh, September! A new beginning for some and the beginning of the end for others ... I'm looking for the end of summer and the beginning of fall! Tired of humidity and heat!
Love, love, love morning glories! What a sweet reminder that your husband is still there with you. xo
Lovely! The flowers here are coming to an end!
Lovely, just lovely.
Lovely flowers with a treat of a hummingbird.
Gorgeous photos. It is just breathtaking.
morning glories are so dainty and delicate looking fits right in with the hummingbird. Reminds me of the song by Seals and Croft...Humming Bird don't fly away
Beautiful photos as always ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good week !
