This is a larger than life bloom from out by the garden shed. A stray morning glory has a vine growing out into the yard. It is a very small bloom that was still in bloom this evening while I was out there looking around for things to photograph.
What was growing on the trellis next to the red bloom on the ground was this blue morning glory. The vines are almost dead so I am grateful to get any photos from the blooms on the vines.
My wife could not imagine what I had done as she was doing correspondence on her computer to a art buyer. She stopped a minute to see that it didn't fall on me and had to get back to her work. I started sorting and tossing of old things.
The incident took three seconds, darn gravity, but the clean up took a lot longer. The photo shows the air conditioner gone from the window and thirty or more vhs tapes in the garbage. It is a good thing as it helped us to get rid of unnecessary stuff. The big heavy books are now on the bottom on their sides and the rest is back on the shelves. I have a whole top shelf ready for refilling of more books and things. Spring cleaning in the fall is a good thing.
On a side note, I asked the son John Horton if he would want this bookcase. John had made it for my mom. The son, Loren, said that he had eight or more of these to distribute to all his brothers and nieces and nephews. "Just keep it and enjoy the piece," he said to me.
The zinnia is such a great plant as it keeps putting out new blooms even when their are many dead or partly dead blooms on the stems. I have many new buds right now and blooms.
It is Tuesday and school keeps me so busy. We had windy weather again to day and it didn't warm up much. I have been wearing a coat to take Barney on walks each evening and the promise of a slight frost isn't too far way in the week. Thank you for stopping by today. Take care, everyone.
