Alphabe-Thursday Letter I

It's lesson time again over at Jenny Matlock
This week's letter for Alphabe-Thursday is the letter "I"

"I" is for Ipomoea - Blue Dawn Flower

On a foggy morning

On a sunny morning

"I" is for Impatiens glandulifera - Policeman's Helmut "Wine Red"

"I" is for Ipomoea batatas "Black Heart"

"I" is for Iochroma cyanea "Wine Red"

Above was in my old garden in 2005
and below grown from a cutting taken in 2007 and photographed in 2009.
Sadly this froze clear to the ground during the 2009-2010 winter, but has
rebounded and is now a "bush" as opposed to a "tree."

Next week is Thankful for Thanksgiving
Thanks for stopping by, be sure to come back Dec 2nd for the letter "J". 
"J" is for Jenny Matlock!

  3. Hello Candy,
    this Blue Dawn Flower ist gorgeous. I have seen it blloming in some southern contries like Spain, Italy and Greece. Always it grows like weeds over huge areas and looked just blue everywhere. I planted it in my garden but there bloom always just a few of this wonderfull flowers. Great pictures, great post. Thank you so much.
    Greetings, Johanna

  5. Beautiful flowers! All my flowers are dead here in PA. Warm hugs, Esther

  6. The Heavenly Blue has been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little girl. My grandmother and I planted seeds along her west-facing porch to shade it from the summer sun. This was in Atlanta.

    If you go to my blog and scroll down the right side, you will see another beautiful white bloom.

    Thanks for a walk down memory lane.

  7. I sure didn't realize so many of my favorite flowers started with the Letter I...their botanical names that is! Beautiful photographs!

  8. Beautiful flowers, expertly captured! Lovely post.
    Best wishes,

  11. Oh wow is alll I can sya fab pics

  12. those black hearts go with the tree we found. Amazing flowers!

  13. Thanks for coming by and for all your lovely comments! Any Morning Glory like this Blue Dawn can be problematic if left to its own devices. I just cut them to the ground each Spring and so far they are behaving! :-)


  14. Gorgeous images! That top flower is magnificent. The color is really striking and lovely. And your Thanksgiving music came on...very lovely.

    At first I was thinking "oh no, no beautiful table settings....but your lovely pictures soon quelled my disappointment.

    What a glorious stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "I"!
