Mornin’ Glory


Leaving for a morning walk, along the path was a big surprise. A morning glory vine had snuck into my bed and was peeking out of my metal angel. Instantly I heard my Dad’s voice, “Mornin’ Glory” from my childhood. I hadn’t thought of that for decades but this beautiful reminder brought back that sweet greeting.
