ABC Wednesday - M is for Morning Glory

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


M is for Morning Glory .......

The delicate Morning Glory only lasts for a few hours, so being an early bird is necessary to capture them in full bloom.

I find that mine are usually crawling with ants and they make it even more difficult to get the perfect shot.

The depth of field could have been better on this one, but I like the rippled edges and the glowing center nonetheless.

  7. The glowing center is great. When you say they last only a few hours, do you mean the bloom is completely spent, or that it closes for the day? Please forgive my gardening ignorance. :)
