The Story of A Morning Glory
I’ve been posting things about my celosia plants. This time I wanted to post about my morning glory.
One of the flowers I’m really interested in planting is the morning glory. Since I’ve been into gardening and read a lot of articles about it. I always come across a plant called morning glory and since then I’ve been interested in it. They say that it is really easy to grow and has beautiful flowers. So when I saw packets of morning glory seeds in Handyman, I did not hesitate and bought it immediately.
True enough, they are really easy to grow and can even withstand the heavy rains in our country. After I’ve planted them in their permanent pots, they’ve grown fast. I’ve also made a trellis for two of my morning glories while the other three I’ve placed beside a wall. They are really good to look at. One of the morning glories has two colors of flowers. One of which is red-violet while the other has a violate hue.
Even though I have these beautiful flowers, I can’t enjoy them every day. Morning glories bloom early in the morning and fade in the afternoon. However, my work starts 5 am (which is really early), so when I go to work, they have not fully bloomed and when I go home they have already faded. So I can enjoy them only during Saturdays and Sundays.
These are a few pictures I took every time I see them bloom. I also feel happy when I take pictures of my flowers. They are lovely, aren’t they?
This is one of a few visitors in my pot garden along with earthworms. At first I feel a little anxious when I see them especially the earthworms, but now I really welcome them and I hope they will stay around. I guess they are the ones responsible for the health of my plants… they are like my helpers and I don’t have to pay them. >.<
