Moon(flower) gazing

My mention of the moon yesterday brought inquiries about moonflowers. There seem to be two species most often called moonflowers. They're large white blooms that moon us at night and fade after morning appears. This one is a morning-glory, Ipomoea alba. Native to American tropics, and seen elsewhere in gardens or escaped. These can be up to five inches across. This morning image shows the edges beginning to curl up.
