But sometimes you luck out, and things you weren't expecting pop up!
|a couple garden surprises|
Initially I wasn't sure if the morning glory was a moonflower seed I had planted earlier that had actually survived the birds and squirrels by hiding in the weeds. After closer inspection I realized it was definitely morning glory. The two are closely related, have similar looking leaves and climb in a similar fashion, but you can tell the difference by the growing tips.
But even their flower buds are similar looking swirly cones!
I love the scent of the moonflower, such a shame they only last one evening. I have to be sure I don't miss this one!
