Photo Hunt - string

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is string. Sadly I used my best string shots in a photo hunt fairly recently so here's a pair of morning glories. The string is blurred in the background suporting the plant.

Wow! You sure have nice flowers over there. I love the different colors of the morning glory :)

One of my favourites indeed! Although I think I prefer the Alba if pushed.

[The white one has bigger blooms, but more importantly the leaves are very dark green and glossy which makes a superb back drop. Also the flowers open at night, they almost seem to glow as they're propagated by moths]

Sorry, I begin to ramble.
Cheers

Oh my! Hey - I just got a morning glory kit from a designer at The Digital Scrapbook Place. What a cooincidence.

Your picture is beautiful. :)

How come there are two different colours there? Same plant or are there two plants from different seeds? Nice string Jams.
Mine will be up in half a hour or so, still getting my act together.

I love the photo - and the red flower - so far I'd only seen blue/violet morning glories. (Plus those I've seen don't need any string at all - they seem to cling to anything effortlessly...)
Have a great weekend Jams!

Isn't that always the way? Thinks to self: "Oh, that shot of ___ would have been perfect for this!"

But this is a very nice choice and the colors are incredible!

I have not seen such vibrant coloured morning glorys. Happy weekend!

Baker Watson said...

The best strings supporting plants are the ones you can't really see unless you look hard.

Cute choice for the theme.

Glory be in the Morning Jams - you wouldn't be "string"ing us along now would you with those gorgeous flowers? (Excellent photo!)

Granny said...

Thanks for stopping by Jams. You are so right - knew I couldn't stump you. Two haggis are hanging from the two strings!
