Ode to Morning Glories

purple morning glories by the fence in the backyard
Since the weather is so summer-like lately, some of the flowers have seen a resurgence in blooming. My morning glories are almost prettier now than they were during the summer. I had to take October pictures of them to remember next year. I planted daffodil and tulip bulbs today and also moved some mums and ground cover plants.

I couldn't make this up. Another blog draw win for me! That makes four more prizes to watch for in the mail in the coming days. Toni (Quilting Pirate) emailed that I had won a bag of fabric scraps. I'm all smiles.

What beautiful morning glories! Thanks for your kind offer to help me with blogging; I actually think I'm getting the idea but still have trouble posting photos.

It was fun to see your blog...I like cats, too! And quilting.

Where in MI do you live? We have distant relatives in Cadillac. Long ago our family used to go to a friend's cabin in Benton Harbor. That was when we all lived in WI.

Happy quilting,
Judy S. from WA

Oh, I love morning glory! Unfortunately they don´t grow well here in Norway where I live. This summer I stayed in Califonia for some weeks. One day I found the most lovely Morning Glory but it was in somebodys garden. I couldn´t resist taking a picture of it. The picture is in my blog. My blog Klarafina is in mix of languages.
