I love morning glories.
I mean, I loooooove morning glories! Really and truly. So I thought it would be nice to try to grow some this year. After all, that's what one does when one loves morning glories, right?
So, I planted some seeds in early Spring. Little by little, they sprouted. Eventually, they were potted. And then they grew. And grew. And grew some more.
But--they haven't bloomed yet. There are tons of buds on the leafy vines, including a few that are this close to blooming. Or so I thought. Turns out, they are taking their own sweet time to bloom!
Here's an example. This pic was taken three days ago, on July 4th.
And here's the same flower-to-be. I took this pic this evening, just a few hours ago:
Some progress has been made, but not as much as my impatient little self would like.
Does that look blue to you? It looks pink to me. The seed packet says blue. Hmmmm...
At least I have a plethora of other pretty things to look at while I'm waiting for my beloved morning glory to bloom...
...including sweet little ladybugs. :)
