Answer: Your Morning Glories are behaving in typical way. To me, it is a continual fascination to watch the flowers race through their life cycle, a mere bud one day, a full blown flower the next, and finished forever by that nightfall. Such beauty for such a short time. Fortunately the plant does it all over again the next day, and the next, and the next, until the first strong frost in the fall. Because of this blooming habit Morning Glories have served in past centuries as the symbol of the transience of life: flowers opening in the morning symbolize birth, in full bloom by midday representing the vigor of youth, and fading in the evening signifying old age.
