They waited so long, they left me certain that they'd die back before putting forth a single flower. I've never had such a hard time getting morning glories to flower before (apparently they can be quite temperamental); I'll need to correct whatever mistakes I made to ensure they have more time, and I have more time with them next summer. It's a treat to have them now -- absolutely -- when there's so little else left in the garden but I'm greedy with these. I want more. I want to enjoy them while we're spending long days out in the yard, so I don't have to quickly scurry out to see them before getting back into the house where it's warm. 

A photo a day over at Chicken Blog, too.
