Why I Garden #9

Morning Glory in Bloom

The garden can be full of surprises. An interesting vine sprouted a few months back. Although I didn't recognize it, I decided to let it grow. My theory is that with as many wildflower seeds as I've sown I try to give any new plant a fighting chance to prove it's not a weed. My bet paid off with a Morning Glory.

I don't remember planting any Morning Glory seeds, so this could be from anywhere. Maybe it's a volunteer, or it was hiding in a seed envelope. Hurray for pleasant surprises in the garden!
