As the colors change from forest green to amber and crimson, we waited for the last of our Wilde Bloem flowers to bloom. Late into the season Morning Glory climbed and began to show small buds, each waiting their turn to burst in blue. Knowing this flower is the last to bloom, and each flower lives for just one day, we found ourselves going out every morning just to see if there was a new bloom.
The Mo0rning Glory flower represents love, life and mortality. Lots of symbolism in these beautiful blooms. The first big blue bloom took my breath away. All the symbolism made sense to me. They bloom each morning and spread their petals so wide and always towards the sun, and then by evening, they turn inward and are gone. Each day, a different one would live for one day.
I thought so much about this pattern and the remarkable beauty that came and went in one day. What beauty do I choose to soak in, and share in a day. The questions in my mind were, what if I had just one day to shine and is one day enough? I don't think a flower has made my think so much about my worth in a day. Each morning, I would welcome the new, and go thank them each night.
In addition to the unique life of the Morning Glory blooms, the leaves are a vibrant green in the shape of hearts. Maybe that is where the symbol of love comes from. I love this flower, and can't wait to grow them again next year.
