The morning glory flowers are much prettier than their remaining seed pods, but it's the seed pods that are the real bounty. Each of these pods has several seeds in it. Each seed has the potential to sprout into a a new plant next year. These 3 pods could fill a planter with 10 plants or so. So, while the beauty is gone, the magic for next year is right here. Right along with some magical light surrounding it (good ole lens flare).
