As I visit different blogs, I find that the Passion Flower doesn't always look like mine. Similar, but not the same!
My Passion Vine has become a very popular eatery in my neighborhood. These little critters are all over it and my vine is looking really chewed up!
But this is the reward!
A friend was in my garden a couple of weeks ago and she told me she felt like she was in a Disney movie with all the butterflies flitting about.
The two previous pictures were taken a little earlier in the season. Right now, I am getting the odd flower mostly up high where I can't get a photo. I am wondering just how long it will keep going with our cooler weather. And just how long is Butterfly season anyway?
Look!! This is a fruit (?) on my Passion Vine. Can you eat them , I wonder?
This picture was take the middle of October. See how bright blue it is!! I had an odd bloom now and then beginning in September.
I planted the Heavenly blue morning glory in May because I was afraid my Tuber Morning Glory had died in the harsh winter.
(don't know it's real name but the flowers are as big as Heavenly blue)
My Tuber Morning Glory. I love it as much as my Roses. I have had it for about 8 years and it comes back each summer and blooms proficiently from June to the middle of October. I have never seen it before or since I discovered it in a little nursery in the country - alas the nursery is gone.
This picture was taken today, November 1. See how the blooms now have changed color a bit. With stripes of purple?
And they are blooming Gangbusters!
My purple Tuber is done for the summer so it is perfect timing. But simply accidental on my part!
They are following the sun as it moves in the sky. AND they are in full bloom in the bright sun!! What kind of Morning Glory does that??
The vines are shading me in the late afternoon sun as I like to sit and sew in my garden.
I have come to love the blue ones!!
But, help me here!! I have never had a Morning Glory that did not close soon after the sun hit them. And do you think the Purple Tuber can be rubbing off on the "Heavenly Blue" that I planted from seed?
AND why did they just start blooming in the middle of September to go into full swing in October. I don't have the seed package now but I just picked it up at the store. Any answers??
This is my record of the plants in my garden and how they change through the seasons. I took all the photographs and the plants are in my own little garden unless I specify otherwise. I am happy to share photos as long as you link back to me and give me credit. Thanks for visiting me!
I love babies, embroidery and old fashioned Baby Clothes!! I am the designer for the pattern line "The Old Fashioned Baby". My designs reflect my interest in vintage infant's and children's clothing, as do my classes, many of which include techniques and embellishments used from the late 1800's to the 1950's. I teach these techniques around the United States and publish some of my designs and ideas in Classic Sewing magazine. And I love Roses and all the flowers in My Garden (and yours too, probably).
