Wild Morning Glory

Remember mom's wild Morning Glory experiment gone bad?  The whole thing started out with a clay pot full of planted seeds at the base of a garden chair. 

The poor Witch Hazel is supporting this entire Morning Glory plant!
This is the other garden chair that's beneath our dining room window.  It doesn't get as much sun here.   This is the way the experiment was supposed to turn out only the flowers are supposed to bloom in August and not wait until past mid-October!
Why do the Morning Glory blooms look square, mom?!
 Somebody help me!  A autumn leaf is stuck on my chacheeeeeeee!!
So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥
Molly

We too are having a very mild Fall and it is confusing everything. We have a bad storm coming. Storm Jude should hit us on Monday. Hope it doesn't. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

My azaleas are getting ready to bloom again for some reason and that's just too strange..who can tell with flowers?

That last picture is hilarious. It reminds me of all those statues in Rome with a leaf in a 'strategic' place, lol.

So pretty! Flowers really struggle to grow here so I'm so amazed at your flower pictures.

Mom would be too scared to plant even a single morning glory....even in a pot. She always remembers a little town she visited back home and just about every house and business was covered with morning glory...it got inside their roofs and caused problems with the electrical wiring and damaged walls. It did look pretty while flowering but the rest of the time was just a tangled mess. The birds love the seeds which is how it ends up scattered everywhere

It is very pretty. Didn't know it was an invasive plant.

Love the last pic, had me grinning with the caption.

Your Morning Glory looks beautiful to us! And yesterday at the dog park, I got covered by burrs that Parental Unit had to comb out! As for leaves, they're hangin' all over me after I chase the squirrels...

Mitch and Molly-- you know our friend Benny has gone to be with Maggie and Bambi and Zoie??? Bless Mom and Dad!!
They will miss him so much.
Some morning Glory's are square. They are blooning in Octomber and that is when they should be I think!

Our Mom has been fighting with her morning glories for years and we hate to tell her, but she lost that battle a long time ago. They're out of control, all over the place.

Those leaves like to ride in our curly hairs too. Then we remove them in the living room. Mom loves it.

Our mom loves Morning Glory. Oh yes, some look square but they are still very pretty.

Have a good weekend!

We had morning glories a couple of years ago that grew like crazy but didn't bloom much. You are too funny with the leaf stuck on your butt.

I cannot imagine such beautiful flowers blooming in mid-October! Wow, you are lucky.

Hope someone helped you with that silly leaf, Molly. The morning glories are still very pretty. All of our begonias died last night - we had a heavy frost:(

Happy weekend.

Just like Frankie and Ernie, I totally get that last photo! I must say I've never seen square flowers before.

SissySees said...

We don't have much blooming here, and our trees went straight from green to brown. Such strange weather this year.
