All spring and summer I've been waiting for these guys - waiting . . . waiting . . . re-seeding . . . watering . . .

Then finally see this wee bit of green come up - in August.

The other night I said to Jeff - don't move those sticks I just put on the fence in my south island plot (he's a fuss-budget and woulda' moved 'em).

I did wrap their little wee tendrils around the thin sticks.

Then tonite - Skitter and I are down by the fence next door, having a boo at some of the neighbours flowers (me looking for any that have started seeding, of course).

I walk back up the driveway, up the incline and say to myself 'Oh! Somebody threw a branch down there - flowers - I'll see what's on it'

Lo and behold - finally! Some morning glories!

September 17th, if you please, they arrive. Ohhhhhhhhhh! I hope they grow enough to get seeds.

Should I leave them in the ground for next spring/summer? Or should I just collect the seeds?

I'd collect the seeds just to be on the safe side.

I had planted Morning Glory's years ago, and they didn't bloom. I had tons of leaves, but nothing else. [dunno] I finally got tired of them, so I pulled everything out. Even to this day, about 15 years later, I will get a plant coming up no where near where I planted the original. I see other people have them around their mailboxes, and it looks absolutely gorgious. We live in a townhouse and have a group mailbox, so I can't do that. But I sure enjoy other people's Morning Glories. [flower]

Peace is seeing a sunrise or a sunset and knowing whom to thank.

Pain is inevitable. Misery is optional.

I have a friend in North Carolina who does up her mailbox with morning glories - it looks great.

OK - I'll try to get some seeds outta' the deal.
