a few days ago a little swirly appendage started to get much bigger and i knew it was going to bloom!
i was so pleased! i was watching super close so as not to miss it because the flower only lasts for one day. and then it unraveled! it looked like this before i went to sleep (early in the morning, just after sunrise - my sleep schedule is not normal) i knew that when i got up it would be open!
AND! ... disappointment.
it had rained during the night, and it had rained during the morning and the rain had damaged the blossom. poor little pathetic flower. BUT! the blue is so pretty! and the blossom is HUGE! and i was still excited to see it. + those little pokey things in the back are going to become blossoms in the future i do believe!
here it is later in the day when it had dried out a bit. ugh. look what the weather had done to the poor thing. i dont think it had even rained that hard really. fragile things.
by the end of the night it had shrived up into a candy striped little clump. strange little flower. i still managed to get a few pictures of the blueness though, or, well, in its more shriveled state it appears more purple really.
and for good measure, a few other flower pictures i took around the same time as the morning glory. i planted some sweet peas that i wanted to climb up things, which didnt, oh well.
and some pansies!
