Morning Glory duo

Taken in Portugal last summer I thought the sun shining through these slightly crumpled Morning Glory flowers was rather special, and showed the different colours of the flower.

Very pretty Ellie! The colors are very real also. These flowers are very ephemeral, last very little.
Morning glories. They grow so fast and represent Spring so well. I like the colors with the sun shining through, Ellie!

Beautiful, with the backlighting, Ellie.
We have those flowers in Thailand, bu they have a different name.
"Morning Glory" here is an edible water weed...my story about it here [ http://www.all-my-world.com/pblog/index.php?entry=entry060711-064225 ] including cooking instructions, if you are interested.
They glow from within! It amazes me how you keep coming up with these fresh flower shot.

woh, this one is tricking my eyes...it's like one of those optical illusions, where you can't tell if you're looking at the front of something or at the back of it. very neat.
superbe duo!
It seems that there is a bulb light inside of them !! That's beautiful Ellie.

Pure magic, Ellie. It's like an Easter proclammation is about to happen. smile

BTW, when we were kids in Michigan, we'd pick the morning glories and have them be the skirts on our clothespin ladies. grin
Lovely, truley lovely Ellie.

Excellent spot and capture. The 'transparancy' is very special.

That is gorgeous! What a lovely, bright, happy, feel-good, inviting image! And what an appropriate name for the flower.
Ohh, stars. Skirts, clothespin dolls. Such beautiful light and pastels! You've created some magical thinking over here. Very lovely to ponder as we're having a mostly slushy, gray day here in New England. Thanks Ellie!

Very beautiful, Ellie! I have morning glories but they haven't started blooming yet. I love the center glow smile
Lovely, they look like they gleam from the inside.
