Grow Morning Glory Around Dog Kennel

I tossed Morning Glory seeds all around the dog kennel in hopes it would provide a nice shade cover for summer, and it sure did. It looked nice too.

Don't the morning glories attract a lot of bees? I'd be concerned of my 3 dogs getting bit; just a thought. Tiger lilies are toxic to cats I know; probably dogs too.

I love the idea and morning glory's are great and easy to grow, but they can cause problems for the pets if ingested.
