Morning Glory?

100_3420.JPGWhen I saw this flower yesterday morning I instantly thought of the name Morning Glory. At my desk I dug into my Wildflowers Field guide to refresh my memory. Well, I was close because this flower is part of the Morning Glory family but is in fact called Hedge Bindweed – with arrow shaped leaves.

This flower grows on a vine and likes to spread through brush so the flowers are far apart and can easily be missed. The morning glory family has many members with different sized and shaped leaves.

Flowers are a lot like people, we know they are there but we fail to pay much attention and fail to get to know them.

Did you notice we just passed the half way point in July and the evenings are getting cooler?
