  1. We have pink and white ones growing on our property. I recently began cutting some of them and bringing them inside. They look so pretty in little glass jars. They last a long time too. Visiting from image-in-ing's blog hop.

  2. These look like such healthy fawns., Many that we see in our yard are quite thin in comparison, but they aren't quite as well-fed, I'm sure.

    Love the photo with the deer! <3

  10. The Periwinkles are such lovely flowers.
    The Fawns are so cute; one of them looks a little wary.
    Enjoy the week...

  11. The deer are adorable and the rainbow amazing, We have a different periwinkle sort in Finland, with blue or purple flowers. Perhaps a different plant alltogether, but with the same common name.

  13. Glad to see your periwinkle tips. Is this the same as impatiens? Looks the same. My mother grew a lot of it in South Florida, great shade long bloomer that does not need deadheading. A win!
