Morning Glory Envy and Maine

The other morning, I went past this elegant house (owned by a construction mogul) at the corner of Dartmouth and Marlborough Streets. I was staggered by this luxurious morning glory crop, which you don't often find around here:

I tried to grow morning glories several years ago, when I was an urban gardener — on the same, shady side of the street — but my record was only 26 blooms at the same time. So I'm jealous: I didn't have such a sunny and spacious corner lot; I had to grow mine in pots on the porch. And I didn't have a professional landscaping team making regular visits to coddle my plants, either. I only had me.

Until I can have a garden of my own again, I feel lucky to be able to enjoy (or envy) the wonderful little gardens my neighbors keep, especially now, when summer is at its height.

We're heading to Maine tomorrow morning, but if you check in here, you might find something or other while we're away. Postcards might arrive later than usual, however, as I have another trip planned over Labor Day. I hope you're making the most of the end of August and vacation season, too!
