Cascade of glories

16 10 2008

The ‘Heavenly Blue’ morning glory vine in the backyard garden has finally come into its own. The air is getting cooler each day, so the heat isn’t keeping them down. Every day I see more blooms (on the inside of the fence). I finally decided to get out the stepladder this afternoon to photograph them up close and when I opened the back gate, I had no idea there would be this many blooms on the other side. Yes, you know I counted them—87 total, including two springing from a tendril that has taken hold of the Bradford pear. That’s just 87 today. There are so many unopened buds on this monster! I can’t imagine a garden without these beautiful blue blooms. Take a look at my first posting on morning glories last year here (that day I counted over 300 blooms; it was a real traffic-stopping sight) and some I photographed in August here.
