Who ever heard of morning glories blooming at 6 PM?


Still going strong at 7 PM after sunset!


Here’s one curling up to go to bed (upper right) and another ready to pop open tomorrow (lower left). Last year I started getting up at 4 AM to try to find out when they opened. Guess it’s time to check when they open again! Is it the sun or the changing season that alters their pattern? Do they stay open same length of time each day or longer now that it is cooler? Please send your observations and sign up to be notified about my nature blog!

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
