When I went out walking this morning I happened to glance through one of the front gates and caught this view.
What I liked about it the best was the profusion of Ground Morning Glories, or Convulvulus mauritanicus scampering across the gravel path. I have grown to love this plant for several reasons...it's ease of care, low water needs, the way it creeps, softening edges, and of course the beauty of it's flowers.
I think of it as one of the 'humble plants', often overlooked because it is so easy, and for some reason gardeners seem to be drawn to plants that are difficult. Maybe it is the challenge. I know I used to be that way, but now I prefer my garden plants to be those that will have a better chance of flourishing. in our climate.
Quite, quite, lovely I think and so bounteous in its bloom, starting in early spring and continuing through the hot summer months.
What else can one ask for.
I hope your week is a happy one.
