Wish I Knew Your Name

Why, oh, why did I not keep the identification tag attached to you? I was so excited when if found you, dear flowering shrub with the pretty pink flowers. I ripped off your ID tag, tossed it in the garbage right away, and stuck you in the ground. I wish in past years I had gathered up as many of your kind as possible. I would have planted you all over the place. Your pink flowers bloom all season long, and pink flowers are my favorite. You are a delightful perennial too. You will be back! I will find out what your name happens to be eventually. Next spring, if I know your name, I will hunt you down, buy as many of you as possible, and home to my gardens you all will go.

Hey! Hey! I am here, just horribly busy for at least one more week. You can even send a private message. This is a Vinca . Originally it only came in this really pretty blue shade. Also known as Periwinkle. Now the come in every color from pure white to a deep indigo. They tolerate all kinds of conditions. You have just given me an idea for a whole series of posts about me and flowers. Thanks.

Well, our wonderful @GardenGerty identified that sweet thing as Vinca a.k.a. Periwinkle. It comes in many colors. Next season, I am planting these all over the place. It has flowers throughout the season and is a hardy perennial. I love that little thing.
