Glorious Confusion 9314 A by Eolhin Glorious Confusion 9314 A by Eolhin
No, this is not a photomanipulation, or the results of a dimensional warp or transporter accident…
This is a digital photograph of a rather confused morning glory.

The Story:
As far as I can tell, what happened is that a bug ate a hole in the leaf, then during the night, when the flowers are closed, one poked through the hole in the leaf. In the morning, it tried to open, and this was the result.

One should never fear to be different. Everything is different, one way, or another. We all have to try to bloom, the best we can.

This seemed appropriate to Spirit Day, to me.

Not really, it is a chronic condition that seems to be worse in summer. *wry smile* But once in a while to try to respond to things here anyway.

Thank you. :) Yes, when I captured this, I just had to put it up, even though I was too in pain and tired to put up the rest of the morning glories. I love it when I manage to catch quirks of nature like that.
