Today's Flowers: Periwinkle


From April 10, 2012
My daughter's truest of friends, Clyde, came looking for me last week because he wanted to go for a walk in the woods. Just the two of us. This has never happened before between me and Clyde. He usually tolerates me when I am around this young lady he loves who happens to be my one and only daughter. This time, though, he and I were the only people in the house, and he cme looing forme while I was getting dressed. He bopped right into the bedroom, lept onto the bed, and wiggled is way to the edge to watch and wait. Then he had me out in the woods and, though he gave me the "What have I gotten myself into?" look every time I stepped on a twig, he was genuinely enjoying himself. While we were out there, he took a moment to check out the periwinkle. This flower is as old as Adella. I ordered it for the garden the year she was born.

Maybe Clyde loves you more than you think. :)) Well written, Sandy!

Just goes to show you are part of the pack no matter what you think. Beautiful periwinkle. You should take a hunk of it with you to the Carolinas.

I love doing stuff like this planting trees , flowers etc... and let it grow so you know exactly how old it is by the age of your children.
It makes it so special. :)

Great story about you and Clyde. Lovely shot of the periwinkle. Coincidentally, I have periwinkle at my house that I planted when I was pregnant with my daughter. My daughter is 27 so that was quite some time ago.

You'll do in a pinch if he can't find his real person ;>)...the periwinkle is lovely.
