Flowers For You
Remember that July flood? Yeah, so do I. Well, it put several tons of sand on the property and with the sand came seeds. We have 2 squash plants popping up on fences lines unexpectedly. Here, we have a big, big white flower. I am not sure what it is. I do like that the blossom is nearly as big as my head. Any guesses as to what it is? As you can see, the plant itself is pretty short, and so far, there is only the one blossom. After looking on the web, I think this might be a Datura flower.
Then of course I had to take pictures of the field of Morning Glorys at my parents house. My dad weed-whacked everything in the front yard a few weeks ago. My parents have had Morning Glorys for years in this spot, often climbing the bean plants, taking advantage of collard greens, and tucking under potato plant leaves. After the weed-whacker knocked the heads off all the plants in this little space, the Morning Glorys took advantage of the sun. I took this photo on a cloudy day. They tracked the hidden sun during the few hours I was there.
