Mary's Green Thumb

Mary is my neighbor across the street. She has a green thumb. Flowers everywhere in her yard. The front fence is covered in roses of several color. The mailbox and post are covered with vines of Morning Glories. And all around the front and back yard there are many other plants and flowers.
I am enthralled with morning glories. I don't know why. I have never had any. But when I was in grade school, the house where we lived had a scraggly vine. I do remember they were there. I think I was probably fascinated by the way they vine and climb attaching to different things.
Mary gave me a smaller morning glory she had started. If hubby doesn't let it die while I am in the hospital, maybe I will have my own to photo.
Wednesday I did my walk over to Mary's to photo the flowers. As usual the morning glories beckon to me. I made it to the back yard this time, and she has several more vines of them back there. One is covering a light and post. One vine is mixed colors, one has purple, and one has all white. Others have white with a streak of purple or blue. All so beautiful and so bountiful.
I took photos of some of the roses too. This one is one of the prettiest I think I have seen. In person it looks like it is glowing with sunshine. I think it will make a beautiful colored pencil drawing.

Beautiful flowers, looking forward to the rose in CP.

We are almost home, one more driving day. Then I will be back to the Hunts and more.
