as a morning glory,
reaching out towards the light...
the wind blows and
scatters our beauty.
With Real Toads
Most morning glory flowers unravel into full bloom in the early morning. The flowers usually start to fade a few hours before the "petals" start showing visible curling. They prefer full solar exposure throughout the day, and mesic soils. Some morning glories, such as Ipomoea muricata, are night-blooming flowers.
-"Morning Glory" is a slang term for the male erection which occurs on first awakening in the morning.
-The morning glory represents "love in vain" for whatever outside circumstances according to the Victorian language of flowers.
