If the morning glory has been a surprise, your welcome has been even a bigger one. I hadn't expected that, and I'm red with joy. Thanks to all of you for your kind comments.
GTS has played a major role in my decision to start a blog. I'd seen so lovely pictures, that I wanted to share some with you. It is motivating to see your pictures and think "What if ..."
And taking pictures, as well as looking at pictures, makes me discover details I have never noticed before.
Surely, morning glory can be considered as a weed. Mine was planted three years ago, and not at that place. But there is only one vine left, so I can manage that ;-). My personal weed is that:
This is not a beautiful picture, it is just to give you an idea. This is the largest patch, but there are many others throughout the garden. And the name of this weed is passion flower. This is the hardiest kind. Quite hardy and resisting to draught. Will even flower in the winter if a ray of sun touches it. It was a Mother's day gift, in a small container, years ago. Now it is all over the garden. I'm trying to control it, but it is very difficult. This wall will be cleaned up in a couples of weeks, when it is cooler (it has the advantage to make a curtain between my neighbours and me). I know people would be very happy to grow some, and I confess I like the plant. I think the flower itself is a real beauty. But I'd appreciate to have only a little bit of it.
