Periwinkle has been in the Crayola line up since 1958. It is also known as Dolphin Fin in the “Discovery” series, Hetty the Blue Duck in the Hallmark “Ugly Duckling” set, and Binneywinkle in the “Special Colors of Binney and Smith”. I don’t know about you, but I may have to start paying attention to crayons again. There seems to be a lot of “series” crayolas!  Thinking of Hetty the Blue Duck reminded me of Beatrix Potter and her Jemima Puddle-duck. I’d never heard of Hetty the Blue Duck. So I looked the book up and sorry Hallmark, no comparison! The Hallmark Ugly Duckling Book is really UGLY! Even the cover of the book is ugly! I’ll stick to Beatrix Potter any day! Soft, airy, wispy, watercolored, pastel drawings, with an enchanting story too, just the way I think periwinkle should be represented!

Here is the Beatrix Potter book and here is a picture of Jemima with that rascally fox!

It’s spring and I just love reading the Beatrix Potter books and looking at her drawings of her favorite animal friends! I ‘m sure some of them would have hung out in the periwinkle-colored flowers!! These photos were taken in a cottage garden in the UK during my English Garden Tour!  I am doing all the prep work for another one this summer, as I speak! I can’t wait!
