I love the variegated leaves against the pretty blue flowers! Nice capture!

Beautiful Periwinkle, Carletta. We have Periwinkle also--and use it throughout our yard as a ground cover. Ours blooms those cute little blue flowers also.

Yours is so pretty...
Hugs,
Betsy

I don't think I've ever seen one of these! Is it really called a periwinkle? I know that's a shade of blue, but honestly never realized it was a flower. Beautiful.

This looks so delicate and beautiful.

This is a beautiful macro of the periwinkle. Very well done.

Periwinkle is one of my favorite words, and I have this growing like crazy outside my front door: love it.

Rebecca said...

Periwinkle is such a sweet flower. I think I am going to transplant some of mine and start a new bed of it. Less grass to mow!

I very much like your variegated version! I have tried at least twice to grow them but only the plain ones will live for more than a year in my yard.

Beautiful soft colors in this picture.

I have had periwinkles but not in this color.

So so beautiful!

You found a very pretty periwinkle, Carletta. Then you took an excellent shot of it. It turned out 'the best!'
