  1. Growing up in Ohio and northern Indiana, I always liked the crocuses. They are tough little guys, showing their faces thru the last snow and cold to announce another spring. They were my “look for” sign of spring along with the first Robin I would see.

    1. Thanks, Dad. Glad you like the vinka. We are fond of purple in our family. I appreciate your comment. Look forward to enjoying flower watching with you in person soon. xo


  2. Now you’re being silly Rebecca! Choose a favourite? Put in rank order the snowdrop, the crocus, the daffodil, the wood anemone, the primrose, the wallflower, the bluebell? I don’t think so!

      1. They can be spectacular! The many that I have smelled are more faint than say an aromatic rose. Now, creosote after a rain storm is the most amazing smell and one that does not happen often enough. If you visit the Sonoran Desert, I hope you can experience that, if you never have.

      2. Love Tucson. Lived there for 5 years. Beautiful natural beauty. Slower pace than Phoenix. Bicycle friendly. Good people. If you are able to visit, arrive before June. It can turn brutal quickly. 🥵

  3. I love that your dad comments on your blog, Rebecca. That is so cool! I love your vinca. We have the very same flowers right outside my office window, and I didn’t even know what they were. Vincas were so different in California, and they were not perennials. Beautiful shot. 🙂

    1. Thanks for your comments, Marsha. I am lucky my dad and mom comment on my site. Very sweet of them to support me that way. Vinka comes in many forms and I’ve just learned from a UK reader that their other name is Periwinkle. Love your site, just hit the follow button. : )

      1. Thank you so much, Rebecca. You are very lucky. I have a few friends that comment regularly on my site, but for the most part my followers are bloggers. My parents are both gone, so it’s not likely that they would comment. My brother doesn’t even have a computer or a smart phone, so I can talk about him all I want and he won’t know about it either! 🙂 Thanks again for the comment and the follow. I’m looking forward to getting acquainted. 🙂

      2. Thanks for following, Marsha. Sorry your parents won’t be commenting. Your brother still has a flip phone, wow he has me beat. I just traded mine in two years ago. I’ll be chatting with you again soon, R
