Morning Glory Love/Hate Relationship
We watched the sun rise from our east deck this morning. What a gentle, inspiring beginning to a day. In front of us, a Morning Glory vine was also welcoming the day with these bright blue flowers. It was beautiful.
But then, our eyes backed off from the individual flowers and focused on the total scene
A week ago, we moved the two chairs out to the edge of the deck to make room for grilling. Then we camped at Clinton for a couple days. In that short time, this is the result. The vines are invasive and probably deadly to some plants they choose as hosts. Last night I cut Morning Glory vines out of our grapes. They had wrapped themselves around stems and leaves.
One thing about this plant, it is resilient. And, at times beautiful. That can’t be all bad
