  1. I think of Morning Glory as a weed. But the flowers are white, not that lovely blue. Anne@My Head is Full of Books

  2. They're weed-like where I live, too, and they seem to bloom all year 'round. That's the sunny South for you!

  3. I hadn't realised Morning Glory was in the same family as Convolvulus, which grows far too well in my garden. I can't get rid of it and it binds itself around everything - it's not called bindweed for nothing! And I do prefer that beautiful blue to the bindweeds' white.

  7. Lovely photos. I tried to grow morning glory years ago but it didn't come to anything at all, but it's common relation bindweed is a thug growing just about anywhere!

  8. It's been the same in our neighborhood - flowers blooming alongside the first signs of fall color!

    The morning glories are beautiful!

  11. I love the autumn colours you get in your part of the States. Sydeny doesn't get cold enough for that kind of display or for those trees to thrive in our climate.
    It's lovely to see your pics though :-)

  17. I love morning glories too, but they are considered a pest in Australia- which is a pity, they do look amazing. Weird to have them blooming with the autumnal colours.
