The Morning Glories

My grand dreams of blooming Morning Glories haven't quite turned out as I had hoped. I was under the impression that they were just weeds and would be easy to grow.

Well, not in my short experience. Part of the problem is that we are very dry here. I have been watering the wilted plants every day, but they just aren't looking all that healthy.



Tomorrow's forecast is for rain!! My hubby and I won't know how to act if we aren't spending all our after work time watering plants. Maybe if we start getting some regular rain the Morning Glories will take off!

I love morning glories and yours are beautiful! Hope the rain arrives on time and gives everything a good soaking!

We planted morning glories this year but I can't tell if they've come up or if it's just weeds I'm looking at. I'm horrible at flowers!

The morning glories are still pretty. I love the way the wind themselves around anything available and reach for the sky.

My morning glories didn't come up this year.

I remember morning glories always coming up where I didn't want them to come up! I bought a hanging basket years ago with morning glory inside... I loved the way it climbed up the hangers. I'm praying for rain, too!

I didn't think morning glories were hard to grow either. I hope you get rain!

Your Morning Glories look great compared to mine! :) I got the seed in the ground kind of late, so they're only 4-6 inches tall. But one set is starting to climb. Like you've done, I put a batch by each clothesline pole, with some stakes. I like the pink!

I had to smile when I saw these. I planted some on a utility pole once when and they grew up the pole and across the line. So if yours get to growing real good you may have a morning glory line instead of a clothes line. :) Smile
