First Morning Glories

Not quite the first of the season, but close: an heirloom Grandpa Otts morning glory explodes into the morning light, ready for its brief but glorious one-day span of life. With all due respect to Grandpa Otts, it's Georgia O'Keefe who should be invoked.

Below you can see deer depredations -- the denuded stems left behind by a twilight browser -- some bird droppings, some of the day's glories already starting to droop, and yesterday's beauty -- the rightful and true "first" curled up and folded in on herself. Sic transit gloria mundi.
