One lonely, fading bloom

I haven't been out to pull weeds or look for new blooms in several days. Sometime in the afternoon yesterday, hubby told me there was a bloom on the monster morning glory - well of course I figured it was gone by then. They are usually completely spent by noon-ish so I was surprised when I went out late in the afternoon and it was still there. See it - way down there on the bottom. (ignore the yard that needs attention)

A bit wilted, but still there.

Look at all the blooms on the butterfly bush! Little blue butterflies. I just love 'em. I really hope they come back next year.
I'm way behind in blog reading. I spent most of the weekend working on my teenie tiny little room. I did try to check the 'where bloggers create' posts, but that was just about it. I really enjoyed seeing all the pictures so thanks to everyone who played along. If you haven't seen them yet, get thyself over to Brenda's blog and take a look see. Some really fun places to visit!
Hope you are having a great Monday.

You know what they say "better late than never". Maybe as the weather begins to cool, it will give you more blooms. What do you have it growning on? It's certainly lush and thick!

Sort of looks like that balloon flower to me, doesn't it? It's beautiful though. I keep going out and inspecting all the way around to see if there's even one tiny bloom on mine. Yesterday there was: one tiny bloom. Didn't amount to you know what...

Hi Tina, I'm happy your morning glory bloomed, they are the prettiest flowers....maybe more will be on the way.

Love you cozy space and the changes you are making...a perfect place to create and share your thoughts. I hope to pop over to Brenda's and see everyone else's space...hugs, Linda

p.s. I've been having fun creating fobs:).
