Morning Glory Bush

About  10 Р12  years ago my mom was on the county library board in our local town.

She made some great friends and had a really good time with these ladies.

One lady had a beautiful yard well landscape and thought out and her yard had lots of pocket type gardens. She wanted to have a garden party so everyone could see her yard so all the library board ladies went over to her house for a garden party.

She had the morning glory bushes all over the place so when the garden party ended she gave everyone some cuttings from some of the plants. It was her way of sharing something from her beautiful yard.

My mom gave me a few stems to transplant and from that, we have had many many more. You can root them in water rather quickly and grow lots more plants.

They die back every winter but come back every spring and grow like crazy. We have some right now that are 8ft tall x 5ft wide and full of blooms. You can keep the cut back for a more compact bush of blooms.

We have several rooting in a 5-gallon bucket so we can transplant them in different areas.

The flowers grow in clusters like in the picture they are the size of a small saucer. The stalks are hollow and easy to trim.

They bloom in the morning and new blooms open up each day at sunrise. They do need some sun to produce these beautiful blooms but can get by in partial shade.

There is something special about the beauty of these lavender blooms and my memory of how much my mom loved these flowers.

 

Wisteria blooms

I love wisteria it starts blooming before it leafs out but the purples are just amazing.

For a few days, you see blooms and bark then here come the leaves and even more blooms.

The bumblebees love it so in order to take pictures you have to be willing to share the space with 50 + bumblebees. I really do not mind they never bother me. I even grabbed a picture of one zooming by.

We have wisteria on our back fence and I love it I just wish the blooms lasted longer.

Surround yourself with blooms and your days will be brighter & more colorful.
