Fridays flower is the fantastic Morning Glory. In my opinion Morning Glories have a wonderful old fashioned charm. I planted an entire row of Morning Glories this year. I have been anticipating the sensual blooms for months. The flowers are teasing me. I was expecting a boat load of blooms. I was only getting one single bloom per day. I adore the heavenly blue color.
I check on my garden a few times a day. I do a walk thru to see the progress on the bounty. Wednesday morning was a foggy start to the day. As soon as the sun started to burn off the fog I could see lots of blue flowers on my vine. Imagine my surprise!
The flowers are large in size. They measure about 4 to 5 inches across. The shape is trumpet like, perfect for bees and hummingbirds to pollinate. The honey bees are humming around the entire garden. It's a great sound to hear. I am so grateful to hear the buzzing. I planted 2 different varieties. This is "Clarks Heavenly Blue". As the name suggests the flowers bloom in the morning. By the early afternoon they fade away. I also planted "Flying Saucers". I am still on the look out for the striped bi colored flowers.
As I gaze at the vine I am reminded of a powerful scripture: John 15:4-5 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. Those verses encourage me to stay close to the Lord. I know that without him I can do nothing. Amen!
On the knitting scene I am working on my very first toy. Can you guess what it is?
It's a Hedgehog! The pattern is very well written. It's from Fiber Trends. You can see it here. I should finish the body today. I hope to have it felted tonight. Thank you for stopping by! Until next time......BTW the peaches are almost ready!
