White Wild Morning Glories


I'm thankful for these wild vines growing near my cottage because I'm out of sugar and can't make any nectar for the hummingbirds until I go to the store. The hummers love these deep-throated flowers and so do the bees. I have a refrigerator repairman coming tomorrow so the birds will just have to wait another day. Mother and I have been using powdered sugar in our iced coffee. I could make some nectar with that but I don't know the right proportions that would equal the recipe I use with granulated. Better not upset their scientific substitute, right? [my iPhone photo]

what a gorgeous picture...
and with the bee inside doing his job!
i have a crepe myrtle right by my patio that is tree size and gives full shade. when the white blooms are all over it the honey bees appear. the come in the morning and leave by 5 in the afternoon.
i swear they punch a tiny time clock! i love the humming sound.
and... the picture...
the border on this one is pretty!
hugs,

Your iPhone takes the best pictures. I love morning glories and they reseed every summer here. Ours are blue/violet but I really like the white you have. We do get a lot of hummingbirds and they like the sage, salvia and morning glories in our yard.
