Welcome to Blooming Friday! I start off my blue post with the Blue Dawn flower/Ipomoea indica. It grows in the wild in my hometown and in hilly areas all across India. It’s also known as the Oceanblue morning glory or Blue morning glory. Reason to feel blue is that it died due to neglect! I was too busy concentrating on other plants that I thought wild ones with their aggressive growth would surely be able to look after themselves!! How could I have known that it had acquired cultivated traits and neglect was certainly not what it wanted?
More reason to feel blue when I look at the photos of the Blue Dawn’s happier days! Here she is, drenched to the skin, soaking up the early morning sun. Photos had to be taken early before the heat took its toll, before the blooms would turn a pale shade of magenta, before they would curl up and eventually, die!
