I love these flowers. Not keen on the sprawl, but under a hedge it would be lovely!

Wow that's early into flower. I'd rather see this in the hedge than the flipping ivy. I love the colour.

I'm the same Karen it try's to Brel out but I'm always there to keep it in place :-)

Thanks Hb, yes my neighbour has ivy that keeps coming through. I'm not a lover of ivy in the garden personally, it's a nice plant but in the right places.

Vinca minor - used by herbalists in all over Europe as stimulant of the memory, against diarrhoe and inflammation.

I could do with something for the memory Kat lol :-). Or am i just getting older..

We are all getting older. But memory is only about excercise. Did you for instance know, that London taxidrivers have higher plasticity of brain then London bus drivers? You know why? Because they always look for a new route and even the same route isnĀ“t same because of the traffic jams. ;-)
Vinca minor according to some Amercan scientists improves plasticity of the brain after stroke.

No I didn't know that Kat, very interesting.
