830. Morning glory is the best name, it always refreshes me to see it. ~Henry David Thoreau 

In the morning, everything is new.
The day’s blank slate lies before me, ready for my writing.
So I welcome this new day.
It is a gift to me, a new creation, a promise of resurrection.
I am thankful for being alive this morning.

May I not miss beauty.
May I not miss joy.
May I not miss wonder.
May I make the world a better place this day.
~Both passages are excerpts

Oh how I love vines; I love the way they climb; I love the way they twine around things, and so I’m thrilled as up, up, and up they go, these beautiful morning glories of mine! One of their best features is that the hotter it gets, the higher and faster they climb, and the higher they climb the more blooms they produce. Also morning glories come in a variety of colors, and the best part is that they all easily reseed themselves. That means I seldom have to start any new ones because Mother Nature does it for me. I do, however, occasionally try new varieties like the striped ones and the curlicue one you see. Although right now, because of the intense heat, my morning glories are only blooming in the mornings, as their name suggests, they will start staying open most of the day when it finally cools off sometime in September or October. Regardless of when they bloom or how long they stay, morning glories bless my day and among other things make me thankful for the gift of a new day. Thoreau may have been speaking of the glory of the morning in general, but these beauties can’t help but make the glory of the morning more spectacular.
**Give thanks in all circumstances, for this God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thessalonians 5:18  ✝

  1. I used to grow morning glories on the rod iron posts that support the roof on the front side of my house. Then after two or three years I quit, because I was focusing on other things.

    Seeing these pictures and reading this post reminds me of how much I love them. I think I will plant some again next year.

    • Oh, I had a year of two when none came up and I never got around to starting some, and I always regretted it. So now I make sure that if none get started on their own, I start some from seed early on. But the last couple of years, I’ve had so many come up on their own that I’ve been pulling some up. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  2. I too love the vines—they’re so southern, coy and seductive all rolled into one—-I use to have several clematis I had trained on a trellis against the garage of our first home. I love the English cottages covered in trailing ivy–there’s something so romantic and of a time long past with vines. . . .

    • Vines are a bit of a sourthern things, aren’t they?! And they are coy and seductive in our sweltering heat. I have started planting some clematis and love it too. As a matter of fact I just ordered about 6 new ones today. I’m gonna put most of them in that new bed that’s come about along the north side of Natalieworld.
      Roses and clematis how much more romantic can one get, huh?! Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
