Scrolling through some summer-created images I noticed the similar shaped flowers of the Petunia and the Bindweed. Sometimes nature (and/or God) designs complete originals and sometimes it copies parts of it’s other creations.

Ever-UNpopular Bindweed; unpopular because of it’s binding/choking nature to other plants. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg.
This is a common plant for window boxes and planters at outdoor dining venues in Chicago. Always beloved Petunia; sometimes over-planted but always selected to brighten the scene.
Planted here, contrasting with red Begonias this Petunia’s trumpet shape is captivates many an insect. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
The more traditional view of Petunias show their colors that seem to radiate from their inner core.. A common, traditional favorite. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
