mornin'glories!

Today is a cool 68 degrees (so far) and misty with a light fog. Perfect for capturing my morning glories on film. I am a little sceptical about wandering in the yard right now. DH found two baby rattle snakes so there is a nest somewhere.
Shades of blue here. I love them because they are a great hummingbird feeder without the sticky mess of changing the necter and all the little bugs involved.
You need to be careful though. I lost my seeds from last year and didn't plant ANY this year, and this is what I got........



It's a jungle! They wrapped around my steel post bird feeder and with the help of the last storm....brought it down. But I love them and I'm not complaining...just a warning.
Have a green day!

I love your yard and your pics are fantastic. Scary about the rattle snakes, though. Make sure you keep your doors shut! Yikes!

Your Morning Glories are beautiful...I really think I must plant some for my Hummingbirds next year.
Rattle Snakes...scary!!! We have them in our area of NJ also...I think I would freak out if one came to my yeard.

Your garden looks so lush.... bit of a worry those baby rattle snakes though! Be careful.

Let's see if I have this right - rattle snakes, plants that destroy bird houses, softball sized hail, and tornados.

I'd never leave the house.

Yes, I'd keep those windows closed too. Not for the snakes, but those plants. They are not going to stop with the bird feeder you know. You may wake one night to find yourself strapped to your bed by them.

OMG>>>>>>>you have rattlesnakes there, too?!!!! Yikes. I've seen a few but not up close here where they name a baseball team the Diamondbacks. Brother!! I so love morning glories...how I miss them. How fun, really, that you have all those without planting. Just glorious.
