A very ordinary plant in a dry part of the garden - Vinca major cultivar. I illustrate this to make a point. I simply cannot remember a year when a range of different types of plants are flowering so effectively. It has to be the result of a period of hot dry weather in mid summer in 2013 followed by a mild and almost frost free winter. Wild plums and wild cherries in the countryside are flowering equally brilliantly in East Fife.
