Good morning in all glory!
These flowers really touch one's heart.

Reader Wil said...

A glorious morning to you too! Your macros are absolutely stunning.

Martin H. said...

They're such welcoming blooms aren't they, Vicki? You've captured them well.

Pat in east TN said...

The colors are outstanding ... are these ones you planted or volunteers?

Miss_Yves said...

Beautiful !
Thank you for your comment. You can imagine I' m very sad.And my family too.

Jean Baardsen said...

Glad you didn't resist - they're beautiful!

Brian Miller said...

little stars left from the night to grace our morning...love the colors...

Vicki Lane said...

My picture file is full of morning glories -- these are volunteers. I know I planted seeds many years ago.

Nice thought, Brian, stars left from the night!

Louise said...

Happy Morning to you! That haiku brightened mine, as did the beautiful pictures. No morning glories on my little acre. Maybe I should change that.

Elora said...

I fell in love with mine all over again, seeing your photos! We have a poultry netting fence that is gradually giving the Morning Glory family a permanent home. They've come every year, now, for the past four. They greet me as I walk to get the mail every day.

Thank you, Vicki, for sharing those lovely faces!

Suz said...

Deanna said...

Glorious glories!

willow said...

Georgia O'Keefe would love to paint these. Glorious glories.

Vicki Lane said...

Once you plant some, Louise, they'll proliferate -- a warning.

They are cheery, aren't they, Elora!

I'd love some in every color, Suz!

hey are glorious, Deanna@

And very O'Keefe, indeed, Willow!

Friko said...

Morning Glory, an exquisite flower.
They just will not grow for me.

Louise said...

Regarding your comment on my blog, The turkey ladies either aren't bringing their poults to the feeder, or there weren't any this year. I was thinking that, maybe, the hot, hot weather we had in early Spring did the eggs in.

Vicki Lane said...

Suspiros = sighs -- how charming, Maria Cecilia!

Friko -- too chilly and damp, perhaps?

Louise -- perhaps the hens were taking a year off from the demands of motherhood. Or, more likely, some predator got the eggs or the poults early on.

Pretty! Pap was recently telling me-that if you didn't plant beans in the corn when he was a child the morning glories would grow so thickly you had to cut your way in with a pair of scissors.

Lady Katherine said...

Just lovely! This Morning Glory color, I first saw when in South Carolina! I loved it so much! I did try to bring a piece home with me, no luck. I have transplanted them in my yard before. But this wonderful had too long of a ride home to Mississippi!

Vicki Lane said...

Tipper, the morning glories are swallowing up my asparagus bed -- the last time I let them get so far gone and started pulling them out, I encountered a copperhead -- which makes me think I'll let frost deal with them this year.

Thanks for stopping by, Lady Katharine! If you like, I'll save seeds and send you some. My email is on my profile, I think.
