Morning View


Morning Glory
 

Tendrils help it to cling on to the nearest leaf or branch.
 

Covering some of our grape vines.
 

Bees love to tunnel inside.
 

Covering an old pear tree on the farm.
  

This fence belongs to a neighbouring farm. 
 
The bright blue of the Morning Glory creeper is a wonderful sight. It grows profusely in certain áreas of the farm and on one wall of my garden. Every year it is cut back to ground level, and produces even more blooms the following year.They are anual climbers with slender stems, heart shaped leaves, and trumpet shaped flowers that can be pink, purple-blue, or white, which open in the sun. The vine quickly reaches a hight of 15 feet in one season, but they can be invasive, and are best trained over a pergola or up a wall or fence.
GOOD FENCES

Oh My!!! Another breathtaking photos, Sonija♡♡♡ I LOVE the noble color purple(the color thought to be in Japan) morning glory; how GORGEOUS they are in your pictures(^_^)v
I think this must be the first time bee looks cute :-)
Thank you very much for the words "tendril, profusely"♪

It got a bit cool during the night; Night Night from Japan.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs, xoxo Miyako*

I love that wonderful smokey blue - bit I do know that this plant can be a bit of a pest in the wrong place - but it does look good!
