Glory of the Morning

Earlier this summer my Dad and I cut down Most of a dead tree that had been in my backyard since I moved in. Just recently I saw that a vine was growing from the neighbor's yard up the fence and around the trunk on my side of the fence. I was excited to see it bloom, because I Suspected it was a Morning Glory. I was so happy to see that it really was! Two Gorgeous blue flowers were worshiping the morning sun when I walked outside.

There is just something about the inside of a Morning Glory Bloom that makes me happy!

I took this picture using my SMacro setting. (I have a little point and shoot, but it does pretty good. There was a lot of ligh ton the flower, so I post processed it with quite a bit of added contrast.)

And here is the full flower, you can just see the second one in the background.
