Morning Glory

The morning glories have been fabulous this year. I finally got around to photographing them--too bad I waited until this shockingly hot day (high 30C, humid, with a smog advisory thrown in for good measure), when they aren't really opening fully before they're done for. But even a touch of frost will finish them, and frost could come any day now.

Just a sample of the profusion...

All the seeds planted this year were saved from last year's plants--we thought there were no heavenly blues--but this week they started to come. Not for the first time, this variety has been very slow to bloom. Some years frost comes first.

Heavenly--but strangely, under the patio roof.

This is a picture of garden coming and going--the scabiosa are nearly done, the morning glories just passing their prime, the anemones are budding.
