Good morning, beautiful

Morning glory after a rain
I woke to the sound and scent of a soft, gentle rain. It was a very welcome visitor 'round these parts, and it looks wonderful on this blue and white morning glory. Shot with the Nikkor 60mm macro lens.

Oh my, and what a good morning it is.

Such a lovely shade of blue, I adore this shot.

My poor babies were not planted soon enough, and I only got a few blooms. Now we seem to be in the winter rains already, so they are yellowing.

Oh how lovely!

We awoke to rain this morning too. Even thunder, which freaked the cat out something awful... :)

Just beautiful! Will you save some seeds for me? Save some and plant them - you'll be amazed at the beauty that unfurls. And nary a one of them will look like this one!
