Late September

With little time for blogging recently it's only the exceptional occurrence that rouses me to put finger to keyboard.  This morning was such a case.

We've had some warm weather recently and this was the sight that greeted me when I let the dogs out.

Ipomea indica on my house wall

Ipomea indica on my house wall
The true perennial Morning Glory, a weed in warmer parts of the world, but a true exotic in cool, wet England.  It's acted as a returning perennial for the last eight years but only really gets into it's stride in September - and is then dependent on warmer nights to produce the largest flowers in any abundance.

Last night was a warm night.
