Beauty or Beast?

By now, I know you have figured out my not so little secret......
I am a flower-a-holic.

When I saw a small morning glory vine creeping up near the front steps, I decided to leave it, and let it do it's thing.

It grew and grew and twisted and turned up the metal railing.
And after months of waiting...finally...it is doing it's thing.




This one is a bit paler than I had wished for, but it still is a beauty.


Many people do not like morning glory and think of it as a pesky vine.
Do you think of Morning glory as a beauty or a beast?

I love morning glories and 4 o'clocks, too! Your morning glories are so very pretty!

definitely beautiful...in the right place.
like my four o'clocks...they're pretty in my side garden, but not so pretty as a weed in the front! :-)

Absolutely beauties, Jenni. In our old house Josie and I planted morning glories around our fence posts, and watching them open all summer was a beautiful thing, indeed! Yours are (is) lovely.

I love morning glories!! My Mom had them at her house - I would love to get them to grow up the backside of my house.

Glad to see more morning glory lovers out there. I too like four o'clocks, Natalie and Sandy.

Jean- Morning glories are pretty easy to grow. Just start the seeds in some water.

Marilyn- Glad you and Josie are enjoying your morning glories.

Heather- Welcome and thanks for stopping by.
