This may look like a morning glory, but it’s actually a wild native plant called bindweed with much smaller flowers, typically white with just a gentle blush of violet. Like morning glories the vine wraps itself tightly around whatever it touches and then reaches for the sky. Sometimes a plant it’s climbing is sacrificed in the process. But it’s so delicately beautiful perhaps we can excuse it.
I dropped my car off for inspection at a station just blocks from my house and took a morning walk from there to the grocery store on this dark and foggy morning. The sun rose and the fog lifted as I walked through small town alleys and back streets, along railroad tracks and a small industrial area, taking photos all the way. What a wonder of variety to be seen shrouded in mist and dripping with rain and glowing in the dim and sparkling with a million tiny droplets—spiderwebs encrusted with sparkling diamonds festooned the bridge over the creek, each spike from each seed in a seedhead of grass tipped with a glowing light, rosebuds and zinnias flashing pink and coral in the dim, train tracks disappearing, and more. I changed some photos to grayscale and left some in color, otherwise I have no filters on anything, it’s all just the amazing world that’s everywhere.. . . . . . .
