Saturday Snapshot -- Morning Glories

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

We planted morning glories a couple of years ago and they come back every year. They grow up the black, wrought-iron railing, and this one has decided to take over the rocking chair on the back porch.
The morning glories open in the morning then close the rest of the day. But they're back open, pink and purple, the next morning.

We have them along our back fence too. They're very sweet little flowers.

I think I will plant the m along our back fence next year. I'd love to see them in bloom.

My mom planted some when I was young and they went right up a telephone pole!

I do love the intricate twisting of the leaves around that chair. When the flowers open, they must be glorious.

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

How clever of the plant... and it adds an interesting touch to the chair.

That makes sense - I never realized that was why they're called Morning Glories.

We have them making their way down our fence. Good for privacy!

My grandmother had morning glories on one sound of the house and four-o'clocks on the other. Such pretty flowers!
