Macro Monday - Sun Lit Morning glories







These are straight out of the camera this past summer, the late afternoon as the tail end of the sun lit up the flesh of the flower.

It's beautiful! any idea of it's name? looks like a little trumpet flower to me.

Hi Jama,

I dont know the actual botanical name, but its part of the morning glories my mom planted that just come up on their own now. This was just before it opened, or just when it closed for the day, I cant remember which. I thought it was just breath taking with the sun coming through the side of it.
Thanks!
Pam

Very beautiful photos! As far as I know, the Morning Glories is a very large family of flowers but the one you photographed looks like an "ipomoea purpurea" but I may be wrong. Have a wonderful new week!

Muge,

Thanks for the kind thoughts and the facts!

I just know they come up on their own now, self seed and also use my sweet peas to climb. I love that about them.

These are beautiful! My dad always grew morning glories on the front porch so this brings back lots of memories for me. :)

Amazing and beautiful! I love how tightly buds are folded!

Pamela said...

Thanks for the wonderful comments you guys.

Yes morning glories do bring back memories of my mom as well. She loved those and Zinnias. Then came sunflowers and such.

(I will take down the snow soon as winter is over...sorry about the slow connection)

These are beautiful. The flower seems to be reaching. I think the first is the best.
