|"Blue Heaven" because blue can be happy too! Mixed Media Art on Paint Chip Card ©CindyRippe2013|
I've had some beautiful and interesting experiences with growing Morning Glories over the years. There was one year that the plant grew so tall that it reached for the telephone line that hangs across the back of my yard. There was a 2 foot tall birdhouse at the top of the pole (about 9 ft high) that the vine was climbing. The vine wrapped it's way up the pole, past the birdhouse and attached to the phone line. There were about a million flowers up there and one morning they ate the birdhouse! It detached from the pole, was being held up inside the vine, and hanging from the wire above. This all took just a few days! It seemed like we noticed that the vine needed to be cut back mid-week and planned to trim it on the weekend. That photo ended up in a Birds and Bloom calendar but they didn't print the back story about the "Vine that ate a Birdhouse". I'll have to find that photo and post it here someday.
Blue is a close second to my favorite color, pink, and morning glories can't help but make you feel happy. They seem to smile at the sun each morning and the yellow glow in the center of each one reminds us that being happy comes from inside. A lesson I needed today and I hope that inspires you to be happy too.
