WILD THING, YOU MAKE MY HEART SING

I looked out the window along the woods this morning, and saw all these wild morning glories. I wish I had a decent camera because it was awesome. Some are pink and some are purple. I wonder if the type of soil has anything to do with it. They look like the same morning glory but just different colors. I also spotted this lantiana that looks different from the ones I grow. Pretty little yellow flowers and some type of pea blooms. It was early and I was in my PJs, but determined. : ) My camera is a real cheapo so I don't do close ups but I just had to try. It was beautiful in person, just climbing up in the trees like that.

Here you have wild morning glories and I cannot get any to grow from planted seeds! I reckon if we ever have any decent rain again during the spring, the seed will germinate for me! I will try again next spring….

Some pictures just dont do the blooms justice no matter how much we try to capture them. I have a view out the office window I would love for all to see but I know the camera will never be able to give you the view I see... Luckily, we gardeners/bloggers have the ability to appreciate a picture by letting our imagination assist us at times… I think they are great pictures…

Loved your morning glories! What a great thing to do--spend the early morning hours in the garden!

We have some morning glories blooming at work right now. They are both pink and purple also. They are really pretty growing on our white picket fence.

Cool! Those are soooo pretty! You know that I adore Morning Glories. What a nice surprise. You seem to get quite a few garden surprises!

Cindy said...

Those are beautiful wild blooms! What a profusion of colors!

Wild morning glories are so beautiful! (and rampant:) I have your yellow daisy looking bloom. No camera can out do the human eye! Thank you for sharing these 'wild ones' today!

None of my morning glories, wild or otherwise, seem to want to bloom this year. So I'm happy someone I know is getting some! Do you mind if I use a form of your "not accepting awards" wording at the top of your blog? You said it ever so graciously, and I would change it a bit so as not to copy.

Hi Eve,

Those are lovely flowers! And I also love that pretty kitty in your profile photo.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope Ike doesn't give you any problems...but sadly, he's probably going to wreck havoc on someone. Take care!

Some wild things have found their way into my yard and blog lately too. You know, I think maybe the problem with the camera might be related to the humidity we are both experiencing right now. I have noticed my pictures are not as clear and sharp as they were just a few months ago. Of course, I have a lot to learn about photography. Don't feel discouraged about the quality of your camera. The pictures should just be a minor portion of your perspective on things.

What a beautiful surprise. they are all so sparkly and pretty.

This just shows that the prettiest plants don't always have to be nurtured carefully, weeded, and fertilized! My camera is not the best either, and I've found that oftentimes the color in the photos looks washed out. Your last two look great, though!
Now I'm going to be humming that song all day:)
