Dill, Morning Glories and Bindweed

 At this lush point in the summer, tomatoes and zucchini are ripening and new flower buds open every morning. In a yard devoted to rows of sunflowers and vegetables, there is an entanglement of dill, morning glories and bindweed. Morning glories and bindweed are cousins, one with heart shaped leaves, the other with leaves like green arrows. They curl and twirl themselves around the stems of dill. One is considered a welcome garden flower, the other is labeled a weed Neither seems to care. They continue sending out fine tendrils, growing and twining.
