19.06.2022 30 Days Wild #19 Beautiful morning glory on barren wastelands

An appreciation of Sea Bindweed today.

Such an incredible splash of colour – normally on barren sand or coastal wasteland.

Taglys Arfor / Calystegia soldanella / Sea Bindweed

Being placed on such a dull canvas really brings the beauty of this plant to the fore.

Twining and quite invasive in the ‘wrong’ place – I’ve had a number of encounters with its cousin the Hedge bindweed or bellbind (Calystegia sepium) with its pure white trumpet flowers. Needless to say, the bindweed always won. It’s a very resilient success story.

It’s beautiful and another reminder of the potency of nature to place wonderment where we least expect to find it (and sometimes where we least want it).
