These are some morning glories that I grew from seed and transplanted into a raised bed in my Northern Canadian garden. I really think this is a beautiful photo, as the flowers look like they are illuminated from within. Enjoy!
I went outside with my camera like I do every morning to see what I can catch. It was a special day! The first morning glory of the season was open and happy. It was shining like the sun!

Never expected this morning glory vine to climb up and devour our porch light, but it has.
I am not known to have a green thumb but this really amazed. We planted these morning glories this late spring. They grew but I never saw any flowers.

These photos are of the many morning glories that we have on our fence. I keep them because they are my mom's favorite flower, they are so pretty.
I am going to plant some store bought seeds next Spring as these have been growing from their own seed pods for the last six years and they are getting sparse. They are so beautiful! This one is one of the more unusual looking ones, the other is halfway between opening and closing.

Morning glory vines have started to climb my garden fence. I planted them from seed early in April, having in mind that they will eventually grow tall and thick enough to provide afternoon shade for the vegetable garden in a very pretty way.

Morning Glories bring back memories of my grandmother's garden. They are one of the heirloom varieties that people remember most. Thanks for sharing. (04/29/2009)

I have morning glories all over my fence for privacy and because my MOM LOVES THEM. At the end of the season the blooms will turn into little pods and when they become dry you can collect them or let them naturally drop the seeds for next season's growth. I love morning glories. You will have a cover with them for sure, they take over pretty fast!
I love bringing them in and putting them in a vase of water.
They are so amazing how they open in the morning and close during the day!

I planted them on the edge of my garden one year and they took over! It has taken me 3 years to get rid of all the volunteers that keep popping up! I hope you do not have that problem. (05/03/2009)
I planted my morning glories in the ground right under my porch edge. Then I put a fan shaped trellis for them to climb over. Knowing from experience, they are going to go way over, I placed an old chair there at the top for them to run over. I think it worked great. They were pretty from the ground over the trellis and pretty on the porch as they spilled over.

Don't forget to save the seeds. After the flower blooms there is a brown pod with about 5-6 seeds inside.
Yes, they are very beautiful, but here in my state of Australia, they are declared a noxious weed, and it is forbidden to plant them, as they take over everything, and literally smother native plants. So just keep an eye on them and make sure they don't over run any other plants you may want to have around.
These are some morning glories that I had to cover a chain link fence. They are called Heavenly Blue.
Opening the back door to this display of morning glories was a breath-taking pleasure.
This is a shot of my lovely morning glories this past summer - you can see the coxcomb in the background.
This is a picture of the pretty morning glory I planted near the house. Humming birds enjoy them during spring and summer.
