    I've been planting them for the last 5yrs or so, always in the same place. This year I'd like to plant them all around the yard, so I'm looking for fresh ideas for new climbing set-ups, archs, arbors. If you've got pics of yours I'd love to see them.

    I don't have a pic but, years ago I used an old TV antanae tower. I strung it with strin and planted the morning glories at the bottom of the string.

    I don't have to plant them. They're like weeds at my house [​IMG]

    I always plant morning glories. I have had several differnt colors. I always plant some to run on chicken run. I have never had a problem with them bothering the chickens. This picture is getting into summer and they are pretty spent but still love this color.

    I have lots of them. I have never planted a single one, but I do try and water them ... with round up. I have them in huge aboundance in my garden and I hate them. If you don't watch them they will pull down anything that is well set in the ground.

    On a positive note though, they do have a very purdy flower. Enough that we thought about trying to move them to the coop to climb on the fence to help shade for the birds. Mine are very very deep purple. I have never seen the blue ones, they look nice. Are there lots of colors?

    I think they are beautiful along a fence or trellis. Just says summer to me. [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of my morning glory. Somewhere under all that is a pond, a lawn chair, a shopping cart, and probably Jimmy Hoffa as well.
