Just last week I put this morning glory in my "Flops 2005" file. I was not happy with the plant at all. The foliage yellows and the first foot and a half of the plant is pretty bare. Today I was pushing the wheelbarrow through the backyard when I looked up and saw all these blue flowers and I had to stop a moment and admire the sight. Of course, I went right inside to grab the camera to share with all of you. I guess even the flops have their moment of glory! (Especially with a little creative container arranging to hide their flaws!) I added this after Dianne's comment that it did not look like a "flop" to her. I must admit that this picture does make it look better than it really is. And, of course, on most days when it looks really bad, I don't post the picture!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
