The giggling morning glories

The affair was going on for several weeks but not disclosed until today morning. Rain drops hugging the gorgeous blooms of morning glory. MG blooms were looking so happy and went on blooming and blooming with pleasure. Even those stubborn blooms which had no intention to open up and always showed as they were spent but actually not, also participated in the carnival. They did not stop as i caught them in the "act", in fact they cheered and giggled.

Now these vines are covering my front wall of about 15 feet at least. As they reached the top of wall, you can see they sort of had a get together, a junction. i am trying to cover my first floor terrace with these. now they have reached the top, i am guiding them to upper top, makes total of 35 feet.

Now this is interesting. She is trying to elbow her neighbour, C'mon sleepy head, wake up. but she is sort of dozing. Maybe trying to gather the energy to open up and join the party. i hope you enjoyed the show as well. cheers.

Great photographs! What a fantastic colour. I am in awe of it and would love to be able to dye a piece of fabric this lovely colour. I have never seen anything so wonderful! Thank you for sharing! Val

The white centre of the flowers glows like a light bulb, doing justice to its name, Morning Glories!

I too like the glowing center but I'm also intrigued with the way the purple petal tips fold over. Gives them a unique star-quality. Literally. :]

What radiant morning glories! You are a good photographer.
I'm quite bad at photography, and an overcast sky in Delhi adds to the misery.
I liked your post on growing motias (the plant I have has not been doing too well in the container). The pictures of water lilies you have posted look fantastic. I have a fledgling water garden and I hope to add lilies to it. Though I'm a little wary of stagnant water (breeding ground for mosquitoes, flies in our kind of weather)...wonder what you do...
And thanks a lot for stopping by my blog and marking your compliments...

Wow! You have a tight collection of these glories in one bunch.

Never seen anything like it. Truly your garden must be beautiful!

Hello there! All the way from Tennessee. What a lovely blog you have with so many pretties in your city. These morning glories are such a pretty blue. The raindrops sure look fresh and new.

I forgot to ask if you registered your blog with Blotanical-a garden blog directory.

Morning glories are such an easy beauty! So gorgeous, and so easy to grow. I planted a chocolate colored variety this year, and although it's pretty, it doesn't perform nearly as well as the traditional colors. I'm going back to the real thing next year.

So glad to have found your site. Your morning glories are so profuse. Mine get so much afternoon sun, that they shyly emerge for the morning and are then gone. Thank you for joining my site as a follower! Welcome.

The garden's brilliant blooms and your engaging style provide unique entree to an area of the world I'd like to know more about: Lahore. Cheers, Alice
