My garden is starting to look pretty scraggly (as it always does at this point in the summer), but it’s redeemed a little by the morning glories, which are finally beginning to bloom. I love the color–bright indigo with pinkish accents.
Due to the dry spring we had, the vine isn’t as bushy or the flowers as abundant as they have been in past summers, but it still looks really pretty. The dead rhododendron that sits in my garden makes a great support for the vine. Hopefully in another month or so it will be completely covered. The daily thunderstorms we’ve been getting should help it along.
Seeing these flowers first thing every morning always makes my load feel a little bit lighter.
