NF Blo-Ma #18

This little beauty, from the gardens at the college, is called a cardinal climber.
 Like other members of the morning glory family, the blossoms only last the day,
 but there are a lot of them. 
 The leaves are unusual, as well.
Today, I am joining Nature's Footstep
for her macro and flower day.

This cardinal flower is so pretty and vibrant. I don't have a lot of red flowers in my garden so this was a treat to see. Enjoy the rest of your week.
