Late Summer Flowers

I planted morning glories three years ago, and they've come back every year since then. They tend to take over the flowerbed, but they're so pretty I have a hard time getting rid of them.


I planted sunflower seeds in pots on the deck this year. The first one has bloomed finally and has already attracted a little butterfly.


I bought two combination planters for on the deck this spring. I like them there because they attract butterflies and hummingbirds. I remembered to fertilize them this summer and they're still looking pretty good.


Still no sewing here. It's been three months now without a stitch. Well, I have done some mending, but I don't think that really counts! LOL

  4. I love MOrning Glories - I have some that come backevery year, but it is in a bed that other plants don't do well in so they are so welcome. Our few gifted sunflowers via chipmonk and squirrel planting have opened, too. Although ours attract the bees right now - that's good too as we have to save our bees.

  7. My Dad has morning glory growing at the base of his fruit trees. I love seeing them, though I know they can get out of hand.

  9. I also planted Morning Glories about 3 years ago and they have come back too. They are on the side of my house, but have crept around the corner to the front of the house. They actually look really pretty laying on the ground in front. I have spotted 2 immature Baltimore Orioles at my hummingbird feeder lately. I'm so excited!! I have tried in years past to attract them with fruit, etc with no luck.

  10. Your flowers are beautiful, Terry, particularly the morning glories! Overhere the Larger Bindweed species (http://www.luontoportti.com/suomi/en/kukkakasvit/larger-bindweed) is considered a harmful invasive plant. :( I've had it once on my balcony, though, and loved it!

  12. I love morning glories, I have never been lucky enough for the to reseed in the area I put them every year! With the season change you may find your sewing mojo returning, I look forward to a little more quiet time to sew.

  13. I never could grow Morning Glories. You must have the right touch! I've found my way back to my sewing. Decided to make a non-quilt project, one thing led to another and now there's a quilt top in the works. Hope you surprise yourself and begin again, perhaps with a little something different.
