A PEEK OF PERI!

Who can resist the sweet Vinca Minor more commonly known as PeriWinkle.  It is a delightful ground cover that puts on a beautiful display of delicate periwinkle blue flowers covering evergreen leaves. Mine is located at the front of our property in the first bed I created.  This pic shows the periwinkle tucking itself inside the tangled looking stump left behind after a beautiful, old and very large Maple tree decided that it had been upright long enough and simply lay itself down across our driveway in a very quiet manner.  I must say that we were surprised and devastated.  Of course it was rotten from the inside out, as is usually the case with these old maples, so we have another interesting large piece of wood left behind for plants to ramble on and small creatures to move in to.
