Not a Flying Saucer

I should have known better than to order seeds on the internet,

but I had my heart set on Flying Saucers entwining on my new circles trellis.

The seeds came in a plain sealed envelope. There was a little paper about morning glories included.

These seeds have been carefully planted and pampered.

I was excited to see the first buds. I was looking forward to those giant blue and white blooms mixing with the red blooms of the Red Cypress vine. But instead of Lovely blue blooms, purple appeared.

REAL Flying Saucer morning glories

The purple bloom came over like a lead balloon. Maybe a stray wild seed got mixed in?

NOT Flying Saucer morning glories

More and more purple flowers have appeared. Just that small common variety that grows by the side of the road.

I fear the Flower has imported an expensive weed!

Now that I’m thinking about it, the Lablab purpureus I ordered does look a little like Kudzu.

Lablab purpureus… I HOPE

POOR FLOW

Flying Saucers

I looked out my kitchen window this morning and yelped for joy.

There they finally were

among the weedy unwelcome morning glories.

FLYING SAUCERS!

I planted them on April 25.   I wondered why I had not seen one yet.

Aren’t they lovely?

Daddy’s favorite color of blue, bluebird blue.

Blue and white.
