Happy Sunday to you all!  

As we were leaving for breakfast this morning ... I noticed how many beautiful Morning Glories were in bloom and thought I'd share them with you.  KEEP IN MIND ... I did NOT plant any of these plants ... the birds & Mother Nature took care of that for me!

Yes ... I planted the Petunia pot ... but did NOT plant the Morning Glory Pot.  It was sitting empty near the rose bush where a couple Morning Glories showed up last year and evidently seeds dropped into the pot and VIOLA!  A pot of Morning Glories came to life this Spring.

Isn't this just beautiful??  When I noticed the Morning Glories showing up all around my other plantings along the side of the garage ... I positioned this beautiful set of wind chimes our friends from Toledo gave us when we moved into our home in Akron, so they'd have something to climb on.  THEN I had to go purchase another trellis device as there were too many for the windchimes.  Would you believe there are Liatris & Black Eyed Susans planted in amongst these Glories!!  Or at least they are TRYING to survive in there!

AND LOOK AT THIS ... around the back of the garage where the 'man door' is located (which you can't even use right now) ... I do have a trellis where I originally started planting my Morning Glories (something my Dad always had at the base of the Old Oak Tree in the back yard) ... but now they aren't happy with the trellis I put up for them and have taken over the PAD at the base of the door. 

I don't have the heart to disturb them so have told hubby to go through the big garage doors and let them 'do their thing' until winter starts and I'll take them out.  

I just can't believe how they have TAKEN OVER but I am enjoying the beautiful early morning flowers and hope you have enjoyed seeing them too.  Have a great day!
