Summer Morning When All Flowers are Equal

I walked out in the garden around 7:30 this morning to check for ripe tomatoes.  There were a few.  What really caught my eye, though, were the flowers.  Obnoxious and invasive flowers but this morning, they were beautiful.  So pretty, I had to get my camera and capture them and the activity there were creating.

First, just as I walked out the door, there was that nettle that I want to pull but never have my gloves with me when I think of it.  Still, so pretty in the morning.

Next, out in the garden, there was the bindweed we’ve been fighting all summer.  Still, there is a honey bee enjoying it’s nectar.

And, there around the tomatoes and grapes is that darn Morning Glory vine that will take over the plants if we don’t get on it.  But, there is a bee clear in that little flower.  And, isn’t that a beautiful shade of blue?

Finally, coming back into the house, I see a legitimate flower on my poor bug riddled Hosta by the back door.  This beautiful morning though, all the flowers were lovely.  I walked away from them—I’ll deal with the vines tomorrow.
