Morning Glories Grow So Quickly

My morning glories have really taken off in the last few days. I just posted some garden pictures a week ago today and they were not at all climbing the string. I think I took those just that day but it might have been the day before. Now they're more than a foot up the string in places.

I've always known that they take off all of a sudden but I've never had quite this kind of photographic evidence. It's fun to see the progress.

I'm pretty happy with the way the garden is shaping up at the moment. Things are growing together and giving that "mixed" look that I love. I am glad I planted so many of the lime-green colored squash vines, as well as the dark purple ones. They're a nice look in the flower bed and they're growing like crazy. I love anything that grows like mad.

I'm thankful for the rocks my former boyfriend gave me from his farm. They really add a lot to the garden. I love rocks and have quite the collection at my front door, but these were picked up on his farm specifically with the idea of using them in the flower bed.
