Blue Turns Pink

I planted some hybrid morning glories in a big old pot outside my studio door this Spring. The vines took forever to finally take off and then more forever to get buds but now all of sudden they are producing like crazy. And they are magnificent. The brilliant blue flowers are stunning and at least 5 inches across. But the thing I found that was so interesting, and after their one day of bloom, they close up and are completely pink. Before they open there is not a hint of pink and not a hint of pink in the pretty blue flower. (the bugs seem to like the leaves :)

Your flowers are so pretty. I don't seem to have a green thumb when it comes to growing flowers. Have a great time at the beach, hope you find some more shells.

Gorgeous morning glories Lynn! How fascinating that they change colors like that. Morning glories are one of my favorite flowers.

Have a fabulous time at the beach!

It took my morning glories forever to bloom this year. I love how yours close up a different color. I will have to check on mine for that. Have fun!

I haven't planted morning glories for years! I used to save seeds for some really pretty pink ones.
Yours look gorgeous and you get it both ways.....blue, then pink! Lovely shades.
Have fun at the beach!

I am soooo jealous. I have pretty good luck growing just about anything...but I'll be darned if I can grow Morning Glories and they are one of my favorites. Yes, it is amazing how they change colors! Hugs- Diana

I've never tried to grow morning glories. I will add them to my list.

Have a wonderful time and we'll plan to get together when we both get back from vacation.
Hugs, Sherry

Lynn!

That sounds like fun, and even if I do live five minutes away from the beach, for the last month, I might as well have lived on the mooon! ;-)

Checking in from my exile to see what you're up to, and I'm happy to see that you are headed to your favorite spot. Hope all is well in your corner of the world. I hope to be blogging again soon, maybe in a week or so. In the mean time, I had to see what my buddy was doing. :-)

XO,

Sheila

Be sure to come over and see my THANK YOU, LYNN...:)))

Trotter said...

Hi Lynn! No, I can't believe you're still on the beach... ;)

Blogtrotter Two just left Sardinia 2009, but it couldn’t make it without showing you the incredible Porto Cervo and its yachts... Enjoy and have a great week!

Hey Lynn, just dropping by to say hi. I think your gone to the beach? Can it be? Lucky you.
Now about those morning glories... I had some too. I wouldn't know what they looked like because I don't get up early enough to see them lol I'm not kidding really. I haven't seen one yet. I know they are there, but since I haven't shown my face to them, they won't show me their's either. Too funny, but I LOVE the PINK when yours are closed. Might just have to make sure I look next summer.
Hope your having some fun. I'm sure you are.
Love Ya
Love me
