Early this morning I took my usual morning walk through my garden to check if anything new was blooming.
I checked on the Morning Glories. One flower stood out from all the others.
The curvy edge of the flower was rimmed with the color red. The reason for this coloration is unknown to me, but it was so pretty!
In the picture the color looks purple, but it was more of a red.
We transplanted this cactus about a month ago and likes the location so much that is has about 14 buds getting ready to bloom.
Cactus flowers are a treat to see, but they don’t last very long.
And as a show of support for the United States soccer team, I’m posting a picture of our grandkids, my hubby and myself, all ready to cheer next week.
Have a wonderful weekend.♥♥♥♥
I am taking a few days off from my blogging duties, but I’m leaving you a few garden pictures to enjoy.
The idea to grow my Morning Glories down from a hanging pot is from Pinterest.
The other pictures are of a butterfly which finally let me get a photo with its wings open.
Have a wonderful weekend!♥♥♥♥
Excitement has been with me the past couple of days because my Morning Glory plant has given me some blooms. I’ve wanted a plant for years now and this year I planted the seeds in a little flower bed that hubby made especially for my most desired plant.
I would watch the growth each morning, and yes, I know I’m sounding a little obsessed with this plant, but I have envisioned Morning Glories growing on the back fence in the garden area for a few years now.
It’s amazing to me that this old city girl can grow pretty flowers, because I am not a “real gardener, ” I am just a gardener by accident.
Although, I am learning by my mistakes and making corrections.♥♥♥♥
