The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.  ~Gertrude S. Wister

Focus:  Macro

The tiny little flowers of the Periwinkle vine in my garden are blooming.  Although the unassuming flowers of this vine are each less than an inch across, they grow en masse to create a beautiful carpet of color that is one of the first real bursts of spring in my garden.  Some consider this plant to be invasive, but, for me, anything that is hardy enough to endure the winter and strong enough to tolerate the weather fluctuations of a Colorado spring is a welcome addition to my garden.
