Theme Day: The Color Blue

heavenly blue

Until just two days ago, my morning glories were blooming furiously - I don't know if they ever lasted so late in the season. But we finally had a killing frost, so this is all I have left of them now!

120 blogs are participating in monthly theme day. Take a trip around the world to see all the varieties of the color blue! (Remember, due to differences in time zones, some posts may not be up yet when you start your trip!)

A very lovely capture of this moist bloom. I dread seeing them peep over the fence into my garden. They are so invasive, but so beautiful, too.

I've been making my way through the posts, and the blogger in Crystal Lake IL had a similar experience. But at least you got to enjoy it late in the season.

A great new angle on the morning glory. Shame they're finished now for you. Ours are still around en masse, as the weather just doesn't seem to cool & the sun's up there every day.

All these blues, after my blue theme through August.
