Heavenly Blue

It's the colour of these morning glories. Typically they come in pink and purple, so I think the blue variety must be some kind of a hybrid. Every day the vine is covered with blooms that die by evening. Then the next morning you are greeted with a whole new set of flowers. They are blooming so profusely that you can just barely see my outdoor tatting spot. Earlier in the year the clematis forms a large column of purple against the wall. The backyard is shaded by tall buildings behind and a large tree overhead, so very little grows back there, but in the front yard I can be surrounded by flowers all summer long. I wonder if I can bring this pot inside and enjoy these flowers throughout the winter? Failing that, I will save the seeds and start another one for next year.

Those planted on a trellis in my daughter's backyard are a vibrant blue also. They are common in the parts of California I've lived in the past. They are beautiful and grow like weeds! Bev

Those are lovely! My mother grew blue morning glories in her garden.
