Mornin' Glory !!!


Morning Glories are my favorite flower. They are so delicate and come in a range of colors.


Last year, I planted morning glories at the mailbox, which really look pretty when they were in full bloom. Since we moved, we no longer have a mailbox near the street, but one attached to the house. So I started my seeds in the house to get an early start and figured out a way to display them on the patio...


I transplanted them in a large pot, and added a short rod iron pole with a garden sign. Then I found a grapevine swag in my craft closet and attached it with wire to the pole at different heights.Now the morning glories will be able to climb the grapevine and fill in nicely !

**** Here's a good project for those of you with little ones to try:

Mix about 5 drops of food coloring into 1/4 cup of water and pour into a tall glass or vase. Pick Queen Anne's Lace and place it in the container.The flowers will absorb the color !

  2. I love morning glories too and have them planted in the back garden growing up my plant stakes. However, they are a hugh nuisance in the veggie garden where they reproduce quite prolificaly!

  7. This is too cool. I have never planted Morning Glories, but my good friend did last week and she told me how easy they were to grow. So not more than two hours ago I went to the store and got some seed packets. I'm now soaking the seeds and will plant them tomorrow!

  8. I love your morning glory planter, what a wonderful idea! They will be so pretty climbing up the swag! Thank you for the fun Queen Anne's Lace idea too. We have a huge field of it by our house so I'll have to go pick some more. :0)
