Ipomoea

Ipomoea indica heeft bloemen die gedurende de dag
verkleuren van diepblauw naar donkerpaars.
Ze groeit het best in volle zon.
I found these breathtaking-blue flowers
near Nietzsche’s Terrace, Nice.

Convolvulaceae (Bindweed family) = dagwinde
(“Morning Glory”: slechts één dag open)

Georgia O’Keeffe explained in a 1946 interview
in the New York Post why she painted colossal flowers:
” When you take a flower in your hand
and really look at it,” she said, cupping her hand
and holding it close to her face,
“it’s your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else.
Most people in the city rush around so,
they have no time to look at a flower.
I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”
