Morning Glories greet the day with glad tidings.
"When she saw the Dawn Flower of the French Riveria for the first time, she could hardly contain herself. It rioted over everything, as though someone had torn great masses out of the morning sky. It was so blue, so blue....
Riginald Arkell - "Old Herbaceous" - 1951
"A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books."
Walt Whitman - "Song of Myself"
"The morning glories decided to open all at once. One bright morning the wall was Nantucket blue, the bell-shaped luminous flowers as smooth as a silky morning gown."
Anna Raver - "Deep in the Green"
"In it's first radiance I have seen the sun!../
I go my way, content that I have been part of the morning light!"
Florence Early Coates - "The Morning Glory"
Our real life Morning Glory....
"She rises with the dawn/
And goes about her day...
With a joy and a zest for living./
She is as bright as the morning sun/
And as sweet and thoughtful
As any parent could hope for...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TAMI
We love you,
Mom and Dad
I hope that all your mornings are glorious...Judy

I must admit that all the morning glory pictures are from last year. This year's crop is shown above, but with the sunshine and now that we have to start watering, they will be as showy in no time.
