Belle-de-jour

This is a kind of morning glory, one of several varieties that I see out in the vineyard. One of the nice things about these vineyards is that the undergrowth isn't destroyed by chemicals. Some of the growers practice organic farming and plow or mow between the rows to control weeds; others do use herbicides early in the season to keep the more aggressive growth down. But in each case, other plants manage to grow among the vines, like these.

A morning glory flower reaches for the light from beneath a row of grape vines.
