Last gasp of summer

These are my morning glories, seizing their last chance to flower before the cold nights stop them in their tracks. The mornings and evenings now are chilly and many of the annual plants (especially in the vegetable patch) are only half alive. Soon they will just become brown masses of tangled stems and will be returned to the earth to be recycled into something new next year. All rights reserved. © Text and image copyright Fleur 2021.

I like your morning glories. I remember when I was a child the first plant that I planted from seed, was a morning glory, and it was the first time that any of my seeds actually grew. They were so beautiful that my mother put in a trellis for them to climb on. We haven't had really cold nights yet, but they are coming.
