convolvulus arvensis

picked early yesterday morning. it is considered a nuisance weed by many as it starts as a low, creeping plant and climbs up everywhere to dominate other plants. but I find it so delicate and pretty!
it is a convolvulus arvensis and the vases are from otchipotchi over here

these past few days have been so hot here that I only go out in the early hours and late evenings ... the only times I seem to be able to think straight! fortunately temperatures seem to start easing now and today it was much pleasant with a light breeze ... phew!!!
