beauty at daylight...

When i was a little girl, my mom had a catalogue of garden flowers. I'd flip through the pages, daydreaming about having a garden one day with all sorts of beautiful flowers, but no such garden would be complete without morning glories.
have you ever seen a morning glory slowly open up at the first glimpse of daylight? simply amazing is all i can say.

I believe you have God's favor and he is going to position you in places you never thought possible. I believe that as you steward your influence, as you keep a heart of excellence, God is going to multiply your influence. He'll take you places that you never dreamed, and He'll use you in ways you never imagined. Believe that you are a person of destiny and look for ways to operate in your place of influence today. i love your devotion and to the gift of jewels. and yes those pictures are beautiful.. god bless you one love......

Ever notice how the centre of a morning glory looks ethereal, like a portal of white light. The blossoms look surreal. We have them growing up the side of our house and I never cease to be amazed by their beauty. They tease us, leaving us wanting more ... utnil tomorrow.

Morning glories have always been a very favorite flower of mine-- I love when they're overgrown and mounded over a fence in all their glory. It's perfection.
Cheers, jj

Beautiful, beautiful morning glorys Se'Lah! The second shot looks looks like there's a light source coming up from the bottom of the flower. You're really good at this picture taking stuff!!! Just kidding! Love the flowers and glad to hear about GOJ!

Ahhh... beautiful, beautiful morning glories. I like how you can always tell that the bees have been inside cause they leave "honey dust." :-) Can't wait for the GOJ!!!

I love morning glories Se'lah, I usually have them growing in my garden, but not this year. My dad went to the morning glory school, grades one to twelve in the same school, the morning glories grew wild, my uncle now owns that property but we have heard many memories from that time., thus the love for morning glories, my favorites are the blue ones. these shots are gorgeous, I am excited about the GOJ. HUGS to you.

Birdie said...

Relyn said...

morning glory... Isn't that just the most marvelous name for a flower?

Meredith said...

I see morning glories from my kitchen window every morning, festooning the porch railing. Their tightly furled buds are such a pleasure to observe as the sun clears the treeline and they unfurl like folded umbrellas. Lovely!

Sharon said...

The morning glory that you show in these photos are especially beautiful! Do you happen to know the name of them? I'd love to grow them myself. I've never had morning glories, but always wanted them.

these beauties were growing wild on the fence at my friend's home. i had to go out and spend time with them. i don't know the name of this variety though.
