Morning Glorious



Morning glories are usually blue, pink, or purple,with white streaks.  The white ones have dark purple streaks. I was intrigued when I found this beauty peeking out  behind the vines.  I had to grab my camera and record this visually stunning, glorious bloom. The color palette is so rare. I think the camaraderie of blogging  is unique like this flower.  Beautiful souls sharing their intimate stories of life, their passions, their dreams and fears.  We all are peering and peeking at a piece of the each others' soul, as we follow or find blogs. It is a true gift, to share such deep, private thoughts and be exposed. In doing so, we are able to stand taller, walk differently. Our vines are deeply connected to who we are; We still have the power n' potential to bloom into our own selves and share our vision and beauty with the world~  I think if you are on the fence about blogging, you need to jump off and give it a try!  It might just change your life; It has mine~
It has given me courage to put myself out there, to find creative souls who share their views n' passions, it has given me a community to be part of, new friends, allowed me to experiment with my creative edge, to be me.
How has your blog affected your life?!

beautiful photos. Blogging has given me a creative outlet that I would never have been able to share with others, otherwise. For that I am very grateful.

Absolutely GLORIOUS photos! Beautiful colors..........I love what you wrote too about putting ourselves out there - it is so affirming to receive support and encouragement in return. It has changed my life as well, and you are one of the first ones aboard my blog:)I also love the vibrant fall leaves alongside your blog - so vivid and colorful.

Morning glories are one of my favorite annuals and I have to have them some where in my yard each summer. I usually like the old fashioned blue and white, but this one is beautiful! Where in the world did you get the seeds?

Ciss B-Lowe's; just a regular pkg, I have never ever seen anything like it! My Mom has always planted Morning Glories! When I lived in Alaska
I planted their cousin, Moon flowers-gorgeous illuminated white, huge blooms. They only opened when it was dark. I have never seen anything like it. Thank you! I googled it and can't find anything~

Sherry-Thank you; I still can't remember how I found you, but I think it was meant to be ;-D

She-I am grateful, your words are so vivid and beautiful, like a painting of one's soul~

Kelley-Thank you, I had to share, never seen anything like it~

Abby-Thank you; I was stunned when I went closer and saw the colors. It was hiding behind heart shaped leaves, peering out! Poetry in nature~

Alex-YOU make me smile~

Carrie-Thank you; It was such a surprise to see it. It looks like Mother Nature painted her petals~

Carolyn-I love that you plant both day n' night flowers! Moonflowers are fun~ It has opened a window to so many unique souls! Thank you for sharing your thoughts~

I love your correlation between your words and these flowers. You weave it all together so wonderfully!

My blog has affected me in such profound ways. It gave my shy, scared, timid self a voice. I share so much of myself that years ago I would have been terrified to share. It allowed me to open up, be vulnerable and put myself out there. In doing this it gave me the opportunity to connect with others. Feel the support of a community. And meet wonderful, amazing, loving individuals like yourself.

blogging is an incredible web. weaved together by each of our stories. so uniquely different. yet with each story told we know and feel deeply that we are not alone. that is a gift.

That is so beautiful, Ellie. I love morning glories, but this one is spectacular. Just look at the colours- like colours blending together in a paintbox!

And your words are as beautiful as the flower. It was a happy day when I found you, and all the other gorgeous souls I am now proud to call my friends.

I know, late! Gorgeous photos. The other thing about morning glories are they bloom, rest and then bloom again; just like bloggers. :)

Great post, Ellie :)

I have always had a thing for Morning glories.. my husband hates them.. he says their vines, kill and climb and destroy.. well I think they are amazing.. and I love the corkscrew looking vine they can create.. and I love their bright colors and their light from within... in the center..
great pictures...

I love morning glories. Blogging is an expression that has helped me grow in countless ways. I'm a far better writer and much smarter as I've gleaned so much knowledge and wisdom from other blogger's expereicnes.

Those morning glories are stunning. You've weaved another masterpiece with your words, Ellie. We are indeed peeking into the souls of others.
LTM said…
OMG, Ellie! Can I LIVE in that color??? That is absolutely gorgeous.

I suddenly feel inspired~ :o)
Hart Johnson said…
What a gorgeous color pallet! We have the blue ones but if they have anything with the blue, it is just a little white (though I do love those blue ones) And very nice simile with the blogging community--we are an unusual mix that create something better than what one usually comes across, ne?

awards for you.
My favorite flower. You captured it well.

"Beautiful souls sharing their intimate stories of life, their passions, their dreams and fears. We all are peering and peeking at a piece of the each others' soul, as we follow or find blogs. It is a true gift,...". I agree with you totally. I have been thinking these very same thoughts the last several days. Well said Ella.
