Morning Glories and Chatter


This morning I'm headed out to pick a bucket of Simplicity pink roses for Paula. She's doing an antique show with her sister this week-end, and they are decorating their booth with fresh flowers. How fun to be able to share with them in this way! Earlier I walked my yard, looking at what was in bloom and might be of benefit to them. The roses are nice, but what it so magnificent right now are the morning glories climbing the dog kennel fence! They are a jumble of heart-shaped leaves and purple and hot pink flowers! Each morning they are at their best, but take an early nap mid-afternoon, disappearing into themselves, only to open wide again the next morning. I wish they could be cut and shared for the antique booth, but they are too tender. So, with morning glory thoughts in mind, I thought I'd share with you a tea towel I embroidered on linen --- one that was inspired by my garden morning glories. Thanks for stopping by and may your day be glorious!

  7. Marilyn, I haven't thought of pressing morning glories. Maybe if they were picked first thing in the morning it would work. They are so tender, but oh, so pretty! I am SO enjoying them as they wind their way around the kennel fence. I can see the tangle outside my kitchen window and love it each morning!
