Well, if the blue beauties are prissy, what would you call these white ones?
I'd call them rockin' hardy survival-of-the-fittest morning glories!! Note that these are growing where they were NOT planted, right out of a crack between two cement patio blocks. I love it when flowers do this. OK. I know it's not supposed to be there. In fact, in my last post about morning glories, Mimi commented that where she lives white morning glories are considered weeds.
American Heritage Dictionary entry for weed: a plant considered undesirable, unattractive, or troublesome, especially one growing where it is not wanted in cultivated ground.
The little flower is attractive though, is it not? It is not undesirable or troublesome because I like it there. (All right, truth be told, these same morning glories in a nearby bed are entwining themselves all over the other plants.) Weed vs. flower....is it in the eye of the beholder?
I love the blue morning glories for their vulnerability and strikingly beautiful blooms. But I love these little, white, weedy ones too....for their resilience.
