These little blue beauties surprised me by appearing much earlier than expected, on the bank beside our drive. In the thick undergrowth I thought I had spotted a flash of blue and on closer inspection here they were. I photographed them on my elbows and knees, trying to avoid getting covered in the wood ash that had been thrown there over the winter and I mostly succeeded in doing so. These periwinkles are such simple flowers, but with their striking colour and the way they fill the bank under the bare trees, I can’t help but feel a thrill when I first see them. Each of these appearances of my Spring flowers marks the steady progression of the season and I do wish they would slow down a bit so that I could savour each one. This early appearance made me realise that it doesn’t matter so much when I think these good things will happen, as they often will surprise me. I should just relax, keep watching and the full Spring lineup will reveal itself in its own time. Have a lovely day, my friends, simple, rich and full of promise like this lovely periwinkle.
