While I am certainly not an expert on birds and blooms; I have developed a serious appreciation for both over the last couple of years. I am not sure of the species of the photo I submitted; but I believe it is the Vitesse Peppermint Vinca. One day while visiting the Dallas Zoo; I was almost eye level to a cluster of these plants and noticed how beautiful they were individually. The texture of each petal was not at all what I anticipated and in my photo I noted how regal this small simple flower can be.
