sometime in august i began to seriously neglect my garden. my beds are overgrown, my containers are dead - its not a pretty sight. i finally mustered up the courage to walk around and access the damage...formulating a plan for fall clean-up (which i have to admit i love just as much as spring planting) when i spotted the morning glories.
what a mess they are making! they have wrapped themselves around the hydrangea bushes and up the birdhouse pole. they are hiding among the bushes and between the pots. they will require a lot of time ripping out...........but how can you be mad at them?
all around i see red and yellow leaves - maroon and orange mums......i must say a pop of blue here and there is quite nice.
so i suppose i'll keep them where they are. clean up can always wait a few weeks more.
