The morning glories that originated at my Mom's house, but passed on to me by my Aunt, have started blooming early this year. This is the earliest that they have bloomed. I think it is because they have finally grown out far enough from under the oak trees to get more sunshine.
They make me smile and bring back happy memories of my Mom and all of her plants. She has been gone almost 20 years, but seeing these blooms take me back -- it seems just like yesterday that she was here, spreading joy all around.
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to tell those around you that you love them.
