Bloomin' Tuesday

I had to delve into my photo archives for my Bloomin' post this week. My cameras broke last week. Both of them bit the dust. We've ordered another one, but it hasn't arrived yet. Ergo -- the archival post.

I feel as if my garden is struggling a bit this year. We had too much rain and cool weather in June for my garden to get a really good footing. My morning glories are not yet at their peak. I'm hoping in about a month they will look like the ones in the photos in the mosaic below. I hope you enjoy these beautiful morning glory shots. They are a beautiful bloom to wake up to every morning. I think they're heaven on a vine. Have a wonderful day!

Both camaras broken? Yikes!! Between blogging and listing on Etsy, you must be a little lost?? I know I would be! Take care ~Natalie

I applaud your making peace with the morning glory. They are indeed beautiful...unlike the variety that I can't get rid of in my yard. Where did you get the different varieties? How do you keep them from taking over the whole yard? Or are they entirely different from the weed? So curious.

We could have used some of that coolness and moisture here, both in June and now July. One would never know that the monsoon season is when we supposedly get most of our yearly rain. We have had a total of .25 inches so far during this season. Hope you get a new camera soon, but looking at your old photos was great.

My yard is the same way this year, struggling both from bad weather and a busy spring on my part. Hope that next year is better. Sorry about your cameras, I would be lost.

Hope your new camera arrives soon. My flowers have not performed as well this year either. It's either stifling hot or soggy around here. Love the collage.

Jenni - I remember the morning glory in Utah -- little vines with small white flowers. Those were horrible! These are nothing like those. They are easily controlled and die back every fall. They do reseed which can be a blessing if you want them back each year. You just have to pull up the ones you don't want. I love them in a "controlled" area, like the ones I have formed into the tee-pees that I have.

What do you use to make your photo collages? They are stunning!

Carla said...

I recently planted a mixed pkt of morning glory, hope I get all these colors. Sorry about your camera, you will most certainly want a replacement before you wedding next month. How exciting!! (funny you've had too much cold, we have too much heat (but for us its normal))

Jean said...

Sorry about the cameras but I don't mind getting another look at your lovely morning glories! I plantes some seeds this year but I'm sure I didn't water them enough. I don't see any coming up. Jean

We have morning glories at my store in the garden. They go crazy. Sorry about your camera, I would be totally bummed if mine broke!

Sue said...

Lost my comment, not sure what I did. I like your pix's from the past! We have a morning glory at my store in the garden we planted 15 years ago. It is amazing. Sorry about your camera, I would be bummed!

I love all of your morning glory shots.You have many different colors they are great.

Sad both your cameras broke! I love seeing the pictures of your garden! I am always amazed! I don't know a whole lot about plants and flowers. I tried this year, but my yard is east facing and pretty much everything fried in the heat of the blaring sun. So sad :( Next year we'll try something new.

So sorry to hear your cameras are broken! I hope the new one arrives soon. I enjoyed your morning glory pictures. Such variety! I've never grown morning glories as I am afraid they will reseed themselves all over the place. But your photos sure make them look tempting! ~~Rhonda

Renee said...

Very nice! I've never planted morning glories, but am going to find a place next year. These pictures are really pretty.
