A beautiful morning glory

We've been growing morning glories for awhile, training them to creep up telephone poles, guy wires, and trellises.

They add a wonderful diversion to otherwise uninteresting landscape items, although when the vines reach the transformers, or important boxes, that's the end of that season!

Of course, morning glories self-sow everywhere and need to be carefully edited as they're emerging in the late spring and early summer.

The one on the telephone pole near the street, past the front vegetable beds, is a particularly lovely color. I haven't ever planted anything but a clear blue variety, so this is clearly a result of genetic recombination and reseeding.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
