Is this October?

Did you ever see a Morning Glory tree?  I grew this morning glory vine up a shadblow this year. It has been really fun to see all the blue blossoms all over the branches every morning. Sometimes there have been as many as 20 blooms!

Doesn't this just glow? The spent bloom from the day before is pretty gorgeous, too. 

Lots of design possibilities with the flower, the buds, and the leaves. 

Here in southern Maine our first frost date is around Sept. 19. Well, that date has come and gone with no frost in sight. Cooler temps next week, perhaps. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my blooming tree!

Enjoy your long weekend!
