two colors on one vine?

I have a few morning glories blooming, but this vine has two blooms, two different colors! Has anyone had this before? Is this normal?

Beautiful little flower, Linda!
Ipomoea purpurea generally have 5 spots .... this is the norm!
They are much rarer spotless as shown in my second picture.

Linda, I think Dany has picked a smaller purpurea bloom and placed it in front of the larger bloom to take his pic.
Here's my pretty nil in 2010 with 2 distinctly diff blooms on the same vine. I;m not sure how often we see the
variance on purpurea blooms.
