Meet Weedy and Pinwheel

I don't know what the name of this flower is, but I call him Weedy.  His other nickname is Left Over.

He is a left over from two years ago.  He was left in a pot, died and resurrected, pathetically.  Then looked like he died again and is struggling to make a come back.  Some friends told me I should pitch the pot.  He does look weedy and needy.

But every morning he greets me with a bloom by the hardest; I haven't the heart to throw him out.

Below is a quick Hello from Pinwheel.  Not the true name of the flower and don't ask me, because I haven't a clue.  But I call her Pinwheel, because her petals remind me the Pinwheels we used to blow in the wind :)  She's a climber, a vine.  She finally looped around the small trellis :)  What's neat about this flower is that she starts off an incredibly soft baby pink and each day she gets a little brighter pink!

I'm starting to realize that I've taken on my grandmother's tendency!  MawMaw sometimes makes up names of flowers that best describe them rather than the given name.  At least I know where I get it from.. praying I have MawMaw's green thumb too!

Could Weedy be a morning glory? Kind of looks like one.
