Months ago we planted Morning Glory and Moon Flower seeds in the pots on either end of our DIY Garden Arch. We have watched as beautiful heart-shaped leaves wound their way up the trellis on both sides. We celebrated when the two sides met. And yet, there were still no flowers. Until this week.
Actually, it happened on the first day of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana). We got our first flower. And now we’ve had one each day. They’re short-lived, but oh so gorgeous! Today’s flower was half blue and half purple and pointed directly at Mama’s bedroom window! We’re still awaiting the white Moon Flowers to join in the action. But this new development has been long-awaited. Hooray!
