Morning Blues

(clicking pictures will enlarge)
While most of the rest of the country are enjoying milder temps, for some reason we're having record highs for this time of year. The normal morning dew, when combined with already-percolating mercury climbs, becomes a thick shroud of steam in and around everything outdoors.

This morning, I had the blues...

these blues. I love wild morning glories!

Yes, I know they're a pest.
But pestilence never looked so beautiful...


I won't confess just which pots and plants lie buried beneath our lush impromptu morning-glory topiary, but instead I'll just enjoy the daily morning show of blooms...lovely! Soon enough it will be time to clean things up (again), but till then let's see just how high it'll go :)
