This is a little section of my back fence that caught my eye yesterday. I started out looking for the Morning Glories that had started to change colors ( in the morning they are intense blue, the color of the tops of the flowers, as the day progresses they turn a deep pink tinged with blue). I saw this cluster of flowers bobbing above my windy suns head. The suns "rays" came bent the opposite direction than our winds blow, so after I got her home, I re-bent her arms to "blow" the same direction as the wind. Below her, I have planted red Fountain Grass, that also moves with the wind. I call the area my "wind garden". Maybe I will have a go at painting the Fountain Grass later on.

What a beautiful little snippet of your garden. I love the idea of a wind garden and may borrow some of your landscaping ideas for my windy yard. These are really nicely done.

Wonderful morning glories, Tami! Perfect juxtaposition of rich blue with the reddish vein in the petals.
