Glorying in the Morning

This small, native morning glory has found its spot along this dirt road near the bear tracks. The vine was covered in blooms and buds. It may be small, but it blooms in a big way. This one is considered invasive.

Morning Glories constitute a large variety of flowers that are mostly blue to violet, but some are white and even red. I have these pop up in my school garden.

Moon Flowers and Cypress Vine are also Morning Glories. These plants are toxic and have been used as hallucinogens and laxatives, but sometimes with serious consequences.
