My mom grew morning glories when I was a kid. She loved them and I just thought they were pretty.


I planted them around my garden fence four years ago. They were beautiful and brought back memories of my mom. Unfortunately, they attempted to strangle my tomato plants. I didn't plant them again and started pulling the seedlings the following spring. Four years later, I pulled some seedlings yesterday.

Default Native purple bindweed

These pop up every year in the beds in front of the house. Usually, I pull most them up if not all of them. This year I'm going to let a few grow. I even put a trellis out for one of the vines.

I saw some growing wild up some rebar at a hot dry barren road construction site.

Default Open this morning

I don't know what these are called because they are from a packet of mixed variety seeds.
