Why are you praising morning glories? They are an awful weed that can creep into farming fields it is a cousin to the Bind Weed, which I fight every year in my hay fields, it is just as bad as Russian Knapp weeds. Hard to kill out, which in turn having to use more harsh chemicals trying to kill it out completely! You may not do it, however every city dwellers that has moved to the country plant these invasive plants thinking they’re pretty, then they dump clippings into our open canals of irrigation water, which in turn, the seeds show up in my fields, in addition, most of these invasive weeds ARE toxic to livestock! I hope in the future you gardeners will investigate plants and how destructive they can become, before shouting their praises. FYI, Red Maple trees are toxic to horses, the leaves, along with oleander leaves will kill a horse within hours! Thank you for your time Tj
