Well, my poor little, beleaguered morning glories have managed a small comeback and have been in bloom for the past couple of weeks. I hope freezing temperatures hold off long enough for them to produce viable seeds for next year's crop.


After someone -- best I can determine is that a crew mowing around the courthouse went down the side of our building also -- mowed them in July, they managed a healthy return, and were in bloom in August when the city crew mowed them down -- and this time there was a brick border around them, two bricks high -- I have no idea what the person who mowed them down in August thought those bricks were for . . .

Today, there were a dozen or so blooms and I took a few photos. I'm probably jinxing the bright little morning glories by posting this, but I want people to know that they are a hardy bunch and so far the cool mornings and light frosts haven't bothered them.

I'm going to work on getting the dandelions out of the brick bordered area so maybe when the morning glories come up next spring, people won't be so quick to mow something just because they have a power tool in their hands. Joyce M. Coomer
