Music 31: Morning Glory!

© Bruce Goodman 6 May 2015


When I lived in North Carolina, I planted this in the garden. It is called Morning Glory or Bindweed. It is my favourite flower, especially the blue!

In New Zealand it is called Convolvulus. It is classified as a noxious weed. It can strangle gigantic trees. It is a horrible pest. The music tries to capture its sinister creep of destruction.

I still think I like it! Especially the blue!

    I think you did a very nice job capturing the sinister creep of destruction. The blue morning glory appeals to me in a more poignant way, heavy with feeling of loss and love. It isn’t a noxious weed, around here—in fact, I’ve had some trouble trying to grow it. It’s an annual and I try each year, because I find it beautiful and it reminds of cherished days in the past. If I were to compose music about it, I guess it would be more longing, and lyrical. I’m glad you still like it, too. Not many flowers are so true blue.

    I’m with you on this one, I love the blue convolvulus/morning glory. I never find that one creeping insidiously about my garden wrapping itself insistently about everything else, smothering innocent saplings and pansies alike……. It is always the white convolvulus!

    The music is really good – I could see that white flowered vine making its way everywhere…..
