These (and other) Morning Glories are blooming now in the canyon, and are often in the same space. (Look especially around the creek at bridge 8.) These three are similar in color (despite how the photos above appear), but you can (usually) tell them apart by their leaves (most reliably if they are all near each other : -)
See if you can match them up! 1, 2, 3! (Answer in tomorrow's post.)
Bird's Foot (aka Triple Leaf) Morning Glory (Ipomoea ternifolia var. leptotoma)
Canyon (aka Bearded)  Morning Glory (Ipomoea barbatisepala)
Ivyleaf Morning Glory (Ipomoea hederacea)
