For Green Thumb Sunday this week, I am going to show you a photo of one of my blue morning glories. For years I tried to grow morning glories. I purchased seeds and plants but the morning glories just never came up. This year, my luck changed. I planted the seeds a little later than I should have and didn't really expect any results. Lo and behold, before long little green sprouts were shooting up out of the ground. Before I knew it I had blue morning glories, which are my favorites. The package that I purchased said they would be a pink/red color.
The morning glories continued to grow up the trellis all summer and right into fall. Last week, I took the photo of this morning glory just before lunch. Notice that one to the right of it was already spent. It's very odd for morning glories to be blooming in Ontario in October. A beautiful flower that survived a light frost or two.
