BT&OW: 09/01/09

Early bird gets these blooms...
(moon plant)
I was going to get up early yesterday and take these for Bloomin' Tuesday, but I forgot we were going out of town early to take my son, Eric to the airport.
When I got back, these evening, and early morning bloomers were all closed up.
So, I captured them this morning.
I planted a whole packet of 'mixed' Morning Glories, and this is the only color I got.
(morning glory)
It will do...
So, here is Bloomin Tuesday and Outdoor Wednesday:)

Wow...just wow. I especially like the morning glories.

MY Outdoor Wednesday is now posted if you'd like to stop by for a visit. WEATHER or not, here it comes! Finally!!

I don't believe I've ever seen a moon plant blooming or otherwise, but I am an early riser. Your morning glory mosaic is lovely too. I think I've visited your blog before but don't recall whether I've mentioned how much I love its name. I agree ... A Mellow Life IS a Good Life indeed ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Mine are thriving in this dry heat, too. Unfortunately, because it is dark when they bloom, it's hard to get good photos of them.

I laughed at the comment you left on my blog about that yucky spider...it does look like a big old tick! blah.

Thanks for stopping by and I am truly sorry if I grossed you out...

Happy OW! You have a beautiful family!!!

I have only seen a moon plant once. Some friends had one. It was fun to enjoy its beauty at an unexpected time of the day.

I love that there is a plant called a moon plant and then you have a Morning Glory. Very pretty!

What beautiful flowers you have. My daughter also planted morning glories.

I have never seen a moon plant but I really like it.

Hi Carla ~ Thank you so much for stopping by Mountain Musings and leaving a comment. I love your beautiful morning glories--if if they aren't different colors! The purple color is really striking.

I understand that moon flowers smell really nice, too. I may plant some next year. I planted morning glories last year and although they were identified as annuals, some came up again this year.

Very pretty! My hubby likes morning glories but I never see them sold here. I wonder if they live in MS!...Christine

Jean said...

Your moon flowers are lovely! I have some in a pot but was told some people put them in the ground here so I planted one. See what happens next year. I love the color of the morning glories you got! Beautiful! Jean

Very pretty. We've got morning glories, but I didn't plant them. They grow where I don't want them to and I end up trying to pull them up. they are throughout my blackberry plants and I don't know how they got there.

I love moon flowers and morning glories, and enjoyed your photos of them. I've combined memes before, too.
