Morning Glory vines tend to take over but I enjoy their flowers so much that I am letting them go wild.
They tend to bloom especially well, at my house, towards the end of summer when other flowers are going to seed.
My echinacea (purple coneflower) is mostly going to seed but I did spot a new small bloom hiding among the old. Although as you can see below the new blossom looks like a pink coneflower. Not sure why these late blooms are light pink since the other blooms on the same plant were a deep purple.
Throughout this post I'll keep going back to the morning glory vines because I've been photographing them so much. I'm having trouble picking the shots I like the most of the morning glory ones.
Not sure why but the one morning glory that bloomed early in the summer was the white ones. Now at the end of the summer with so many of the blue and purple morning glory blooming I'm not seeing the white ones.
The various hibiscus (rose of sharon) shrubs throughout my yard are continuing to bloom well.
They are very popular with ants. When I walk past them if I brush against the rose of sharon, I get ants all over me.
I guess I'll end with one more morning glory shot. I think they should be called morning evening glory. I notice that they not only open at dawn and shut during the heat of the day, they also open in the early evening.
