The moring glories are overtaking the climbing rose bushes. You can hardy walk throught the garden gate without them wrapping around you, too. Soon this hardy vine will die back to nothing come winter.
Then, next summer, they will return to overtake the yard again. I did a quilt in 2005 of this vine dominating the fence. Its called Afternoon Glory because the flowers turn a different color in the afternoon - they are light blue in the moring and lavender in the afternoon.
We have 2 bird feeders. These little finches let me walk right up to them and snap there picture. Joe has all the birds and turkeys in our yard named and trained.
Yes, I said turkeys! Do you think it's time for me to get Joe another dog? This is Tom. He actually calls to Joe for his food. Yes, Tom has trained Joe.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of 9/11 and I wanted to remember it in my garden, next to nature. Our world changed that day forever. Even living on the west coast our family was very much affected. My only son is now a Marine. He was 14 that day. We all seemed to change our priorities. We need to remember how precious our country is and how what we value can be taken away in an instant.
