Morning glory

I have no idea why depression is called "The Blues." Blue is the happiest, lightest, breathingist color to me. Depression should be called "The Mustards."

I had been wanting Heavenly Blue morning glories for decades, ever since I saw them on a neighbor's fence in San Luis Obispo.

I finally got some seeds and planted them and grew them to the flowering stage, which, for me, is a Major Life AccomplishmentTM.

Now I walk out every morning and admire their beauty. They are even prettier in person. The magenta ones are the hummingbirds' favorites, though.

Nothing new today on Linkateria, but keep scrolling down. I am sure there is some cool stuff you missed the first time around.

They sure take the ugly out of a chain link fence in a big way. I've never seen blue MGs before. Lovely.

I like the color mustard. I say the blues should be called the grays. Oh wait, I like gray too. Oh boy.

Hemingway called his depression "the red hots." He too thought that blue was a bad color to describe depression.

well there are different kinds of blue and definitely the color of your flowers cannot be associated with depression;

Those are beee-youtiful!

I think depression should be called the melons. Melon, as a color, is my arch nemesis. I've no beef with blue.

Those are really pretty.

Around here, instead of clover interspersed with grass, there are flowering "weeds" that look like tiny morning glories crawling on the ground. Most that I've seen are white, but some are white with a fuschia stripe.
