All summer the morning glories have been growing happily, smothering the picket fence. They have been covered with buds since August, but only in the last week or so have they begun blooming profusely.
"Heavenly Blue," with that incredible sky-blue hue, is my favorite variety of morning glory (but I like them all.)
As the flowers fade, they become tinged with pink
and they fold in on themselves like a crumpled tissue.
Then they suck it up and clasp their contents tightly to their bosom.
They are truly a glorious addition to morning, complete with their own little sunrise in the center of the bloom.
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
