Last year I grew "Heavenly Blue", a morning glory of such a beautiful color and rather big size, from seeds. Only a few seeds made it and the flowers emerged very late in the summer. This taught me that this plant is a bit finicky and I didn't bother to get any new seeds in the ground.
Well, it re-seeded, and to my delight I saw ONE Heavenly Blue coming up in late spring. It quickly climbed up the trellis that the Geek had built, but then it did nothing. From the look of it I didn't expect it to flower at all.
I was in for quite a surprise. Suddenly I could see little buds, and a couple days ago the first flower opened up in all its (morning) glory. In the middle of September!
You can see why it is called "Heavenly Blue".
This climbing flower always reminds me of the South of France, Provence in particular. When I see it I think of vineyards, old villages hugging a hill, baguette and Camembert, delicious red wine. Long lazy summer days. Ah, c'est la vie!
My Friday Find for this week - I hope you enjoy it a little bit, too. Have a wonderful weekend!
