Lovely photo! I do have a question? Is the flower really purple? Did you do any photo shop on it? I only ask this because I have purple morning glorys in my backyard and everytime I take a picture of them, they come out BLUE! No idea why unless it is my old digital camera. Hope you don't mind me asking!

these are great, I have some growing, too! I think the 'balloon' name is because it is round like a ball in its bud stage.

Ann ~ The flower really is purple. No I didn't photo shop. I have a hard time with blue and white flowers. I used my zoom and didn't get too close. We don't mind you asking :)
