Morning Glory ~ September Birth Flower


September has arrived!
Years ago 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
Morning Glory flowers are a symbol of affection.
They open in the morning light, and curl shut by evening.
Blue, the most common color of Morning Glories,
represents trust, responsibility, honor, and loyalty.

This post was first published September 2011,
and I pulled it for the archives to share again.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
