Morning Glory in the mist
I love very early morning walks. There's a unique kind of peace to experience and sometimes the weather and atmospherics are very special as well.
I came upon an enchanting spread of morning glory recently just as the sun was coming up behind me and the mist had not yet been burned off. The moon was behind the trees in the background and just like these blooms, would soon disappear as the day wore on.
These are in fact non-natives and local plants do struggle with the invasion and establishment of exotic vines and scramblers. But no denying their subtle beauty.
