Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
Maybe you knew already. Maybe you were like me when I first saw the Moon Flower and thought—”looks a lot like a Morning Glory.” The late night beauty and morning starlet are related. The family name? Ipomoea. The largest genus in the flowering plant family, Convolvulaceae, with over 500 species. And, did you know that the sweet potatoe is related?
The warm periwinkle blue is my favorite. I’ve grown them and watched them with utter and complete pleasure. Climbing, twisting, closing late morning. Shy beauties—bellezze timide.
