I didn't either and what took over our yard than wasn't Morning Glory, but I bet they are in the same family.

^^^You and my dad. Every spring, he'd get the lawnmower out with great glee, shouting "Off with their heads!!!"

I love violets in my lawn. Whether I developed that preference just to annoy my dad, we'll never know. Between the violets and the naturalized grape hyacinths, my yard is almost solid purple in the spring.

I wish I could post a picture of the morning glories on my back fence. They've covered the fence, the compost heap, and have grown up the telephone pole and the guy wire anchoring it. Kinda almost makes me look forward to going to work in the morning.
