Good Morning, Morning Glory...


Good morning, morning glory
Good morning, what's your story?
Good morning, where'd you spend the night?

Where did your night dreams take you?
Sorry but I had to wake you.
Oh, I just had to make you shed your special morning light on me...

(From an old song I remember written and sung by Bobbie Gentry - if you remember her, you are probably as old as I am.)

Your morningglories are beautiful. They are certainly tough to look so delicate. I am glad that you are able to do a bit more and are being careful not to overdo. Vicki

Rhonda,

Morning Glories rate righ tup there with Irises and Hollyhocks as my fav flowers so I so enjoyed seeing these. I don't think they do very well in the desert since I never see them growing here. I can enjoy seeing your photos, though!

Hi, Vicki and Susan - as always, I appreciate you sticking with me even though I'm not putting up any new paintings right now :)
Susan, I don't know why your comment came through twice - I'll delete one.
I lied - I can grow tiger lilies, too - they take no care and still grow big and bright in the front yard :) But that's really it!

Hi -
I have been searching for this song....It's been gentle on my mind for oh so long... Yup - I guess we are both from that age. It was a glorious time, a lovely era, and your painting depicts the feeling of the song so beautifully. Thanks. Sounds like you went through something tough, and so I wish you well - and I wish the world more paintings by you. Tamar A

Thanks so much for your comments, Tamar. It was a lovely song. Bobbie Gentry had a wonderful voice. I'm glad it touched you when you found the blog :)
