Good Morning Glory

portugal-029Every day this summer  I  am greeted by these beautiful Morning Glory flowers in my garden. They only last 24 hours but are worth every minute before more beautiful blooms follow the next day.

I planted the seeds back in March and the plants have done especially well this year because of the constant sunshine. Hope it continues so  I can enjoy my morning fix of these fabulous Ipomoea indica which originate from Central America.

Do buy some seeds and try growing them in your garden next year – they are an absolute delight.http://www.thompson-morgan.com/seeds1/group/morning+glory.html?er=google;term=morningglory+seeds&gclid=CNivgv7Qh6MCFRgulAodPDY5aQ

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.

    Hi Debbie, great pictures and there not called morning glory for nothing its such a shame they only last until the evening. Another great place for them is to run them up trellis and they produce a wonderful wall of flowers. – Mark
