Morning glory on green curtain blooms longer in the rain


For four years, this Okinawa morning glory returns each year. While the annual Edo morning glories are just starting to climb, the Okinawa morning glory is already blooming and extending its reach to all corners of the narrow balcony.


Saying a quiet prayer for deceased loved one at Hanazono shrine



A mid-day visit to Hanazono shrine in Shinjuku to say a silent prayer for Ros. RIP. Blue sky on a chilly winter day.

Wilted morning glory in afternoon sunshine


Early in the day, this Okinawa morning glory is a deep blue with lots of large blooms. I like how by afternoon, the flowers turn pink as they wilt.
