Now, this may seem a little unseasonal but in this mild and wet winter there are some plants that have just kept on going without a pause . . .
#004 : Vinca major
major : means 'greater' or 'larger' and distinguishes this plant from the smaller flowered periwinkle, Vinca minor.
The buds are furled like tiny umbrellas.
Take a closer look at the flowers, what elegant geometry! A golden circle in a pentagon, surrounded by five intriguingly asymmetric petals – like a fan or propeller.
Worries about man messing up the natural world aren't new!
