Driving down my street over the weekend, I was surprised to see these morning glories still going strong on a neighbor’s porch! Such an unusual color for fall, except for the gorgeous blue skies.

    What a fun juxtaposition, cornstalks with the Morning Glories. Love it! Its been a really warm fall here in the Northeast. I still have a Hyacinth Bean Vine in full bloom on my front steps in southern NH

    My Morning Glories are still blooming too, although some of the leaves are turning yellow. I LOVE Morning Glories! And since the weather has been warm this fall, they are still going strong.

    Lovely, they're really hardy, mine was still blooming beautifully until it got hit by a hard frost last night! Oh well I guess we'll just have to resign ourselves to the fact that winter is just around the corner.

    Beautiful example of gardening 'up'! I have my morning glories growing over my daughter's outgrown swingset and they're still going gangbusters....

    I can't believe that I have never grown this sweet vine, although I am a big fan of the Hyacinth Bean Deanne mentioned. So many plants out there to try...
