That's a beautiful shot for wrinkled. I always think the morning glories look like they are curled up for a nap at that stage.

Nice wrinkled morning glory :)

Fishman said...

Wrinkles remind us that things come into glory and then will fade away. We just have to accept this fact in life, eh?

Those blooms die every day? Nice.

I have given you "You Give Me Happy Feet" award. Jams, you are there for me in blogging as the numbers tell in your encouraging comments. I went by the numbers, but I really appreciate you and your posts.
I did give it to myself again, "went by the numbers!"
Come get it again from my Little Photo Place and review the rules!

The beauty of the morning glory flower is temporary. It is seen for only a day.
