When I was growing up in Virginia, Periwinkle was always the first sign of spring in our backyard. Even before the Forsythia. Here in Eastern North Carolina it comes a bit later but is still a pretty reliable harbinger of warmer weather ahead. Not that it isn’t warm already. Just a tad above 80. No kidding. Makes me wonder whats ahead for April and May. I don’t even want to think about June and July. See you next time on most of this same blog.
