Glory, Glory, Morning Glory


September has arrived!

Earlier this summer

I came across this lovely fence . . .




Where Morning Glory vines were twining

their way in and out among the

ornamental fleur de lys.




Delicate blue bell shaped flowers opened to the morning sun,




And peeked from within the mass of heart shaped leaves.



Morning Glory ~ September Birth Flower

Welcome September!

Wishing all a safe and fun holiday weekend!

  1. Hi Sarah,

    Oh I love morning glories..even though they try to take over my garden! I selectively pull out what I don't want and I have a few vines that are starting to bloom...heavenly blue and a deep purple are my favs! Happy Septmeber...our temps are going from 100 today to a high of 85 tomorrow!! Hope you get cooler weather too..this is my favorite time of year.

  9. I'm loving your photos of the Morning Glory vines. They look so pretty on the fence.
    I tried some last year and they were pretty on the pergola, but didn't plant any this year.
    Hope you have a nice Labor Day,

  12. This is a great post, Sarah. The Morning Glories are so pretty! I'm a September birthday, and it's my favorite month of the year. I love anything with fleur de lys, especially wrought iron fences. Thanks for sharing and Happy Seasonal Sunday!

    Thank you dearest for your visit. I cannot, no...I REFUSE to believe summer is over!

    BLESSINGS, Anita

  28. Ooooo, one of my most favorite flowers! Love the Frenchy Fence, too.

    Last year, I had them covering my trellis but I tried planting them again this year & they didn't germinate. :(
    I have no idea why. Sad. I'll try again, though, in the spring.

    Hope you're cooling off a little & praying for some rain to come your way. Sure wish we could share ours...we've got plenty.

    Hugs,

  31. Hello Sarah! What a spectacular "Morning Glory! I've always loved this flower and have not had in my garden in years! What wonderful photographs! I can still hear my daddy saying, "Good Morning, Glory!" This truly brought back a special memory.

  33. a beautiful weed that I love. I planted some hybrid morning glories last year and the flowers were huge and a brilliant blue. I replanted the saved seeds this year but they didn't even come up. :)

  34. How lovely and refreshing! I remember when I was little, we lived in the country and was able to burn our garbage in a big metal can away from the house. I didn't like taking the garbage out to the can, but it was always worth it in the mornings just to see the beautiful morning glories growing all around the can.

  35. Hi Sarah!

    I love blue morning glories when they wind up a trellis or fence this way. Happy September! I came back to a cool and rainy NYC from a hot and sunny Denver. Autumn is in the air.

  38. Such pretty flowers but they take over everything In my gazebo so I've been pulling out most of them.... Christine

  39. Morning Glory vines are beautiful, in the right place. They do love to sprawl out!

    I think when they are in a natural setting or along a fence is just perfect!

    Thanks for joining this Wednesday's Bunny Hop Party!

  44. Hoping you are safe with the terrible fires nearby perhaps - please let us know. So very sad to see people losing their homes - this year has certainly been a terrible one for weather around the nation.

    Love your pics of the morning glories - mine are not blossoming as prolifically this year, however the huge white moon flowers entwined around them are spectacular!

    Sarah, you are in our thoughts and prayers. When is our trip dear?
    Hugs, Mary

  45. Happy September to you too, Sarah! I hope the month has started beautifully for you.

    I am enjoying the gorgeous springtime weather and am counting down to a short beach holiday next weekend. I love September!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.
