Mystery Flowers 18

Although it's pretty as can be,
this is not one I'm thrilled to see.

Although I'm not first, I also thought this was bindweed or morning glory. Ours usually don't have that much pink in them, though. The county agents always told folks in our county that the best time to spray them was after the 24th of July because then they would begin taking the poison into their roots. So, time to spray away!
I'm not thrilled to see them either. They are all over my yard. We call them bindweed here. It may be morning glory or a relative of it. One of my sons calls it vine-weed. It's by far the worst weed in my yard.
