Opened Morning Glory

An opened version from the bud image below. These typically open in day and close in the evening, but many remain in different states all day: half-open, half-closed, fully opened, fully closed. At times, I think their best beauty is in their bud state, but alas, they must open to be pollinated.

Wound Bud, a Morning Glory

Its winding way present in bud. This vine took a very long time to get started– nearly all summer, and now, amidst fall, it has come into its own. Ipomea purpurea
