Looking skyward. Nice angle.

Lovely capture. I am not familiar with this name (Bindweed) but your photo looks like the morning glories that are blooming on my fence.

That is a beautiful flower and photo, but this plant is the farmers curse around here and is one of the weeds they try to eliminate from their fields.

Incredible shot! I don't know how you managed to have the close-up flower and the distant sky both in focus.

Hello Andy - glad you find it a positive image.

Hello Rita, Morning Glory is a domesticated version of bindweed (convolvulus). In its wild form it runs rampant and can smother a hedgerow or garden - but I love the shape of its leaves and its large and lovely white flowers.

Hello Taken for Granted. It is not necessarily the kind of plant you'd want in your garden! This one is growing on the chain link fence of a school playing field. Nothing else is meant to grow there and it dies back completely in the autumn so it's a fine place for it to live. It often strikes me, too, that there is great beauty in some undesirable things and plants. In a photograph, one can enjoy this without being bothered by the consequences - in this case, being overwhelmed by greenery! That's the good thing about a blog - one can celebrate rust and weeds!

Thank you Spare Parts and Pics. I'm glad you like the picture of the Bindweed.

Lucy, thank you for your comment. Of course we post images on our blogs that are there for their own shape, color or look. Love the idea of "no consequence."

The sheen that you have captured on the bloom is superb. Altogether a lovely composition.
