From bud to flower

Texas Bindweed Bud with Cloudy Sky 0624

Here once again is Texas bindweed, Convolvulus equitans, a vine whose open flower you saw a month ago. I photographed this transition from bud to flower—though where the first leaves off and the other begins, neither I nor any metaphysician can say—along Greenhill Dr. in Round Rock on July 14th, which marked Bastille Day in France and the beginning of a week of cloudy/rainy weather in central Texas that called forth the rain-lilies and copper lilies you recently saw.
