Thanks you Thomas. They are such plain flowers but with so mch beauty.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Gosh Tomy, those are really big. Most of ours are around 2 inches at most.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Thanks Andrea. The colours do make it look like that I agree.

Hello Ula. Thanks for visiting and commenting. I would think they do look very pretty there as they would hang down from the balcony and make a beautiful show.

Gaelyn said...

These are beautiful. Nice to see a variety of colors. I haven't seen Morning Glories in many years. Our Datura flower is a very similar shape.

Becky and Gary said...

Those are just beautiful Joan. I never knew about the colors either. Our wild ones only come in a very few colors.

Becky said...

Simply beautiful!

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Thanks Becky. Sometimes these simple flowers are best of all.

Penny (AKA Krista) said...

I love, love, LOVE Morning Glories. These ones are particularly pretty... great shots as always, Joan!

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Thanks Krista. Until I took these pics I did not realize the difference in colors. :) Goes to show how we overlook these things and take them for granted.

I didn't know their name let alone all their colors..are you moving toward flowers now Joan..LOL... Michelle

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

LOL!! Does it look like it Michelle? Sometimes there is so much in nature to take photographs of, I do not know what to post first but my love will always be firstly with animals then with insects. :)

JM said...

Amazing variety! I have to pay more attention from now on! :-)

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

I think we tend to not take much notice as they are so common. It is lke not seeing the woods for the trees. :)

Mingfei said...

Fabulous beauty! There are some types I have never found here!

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Hello Mingfei. I never knew they came in such a big variety either. To me I always just saw them as pink, white or blue.
