Nice photo Bill, professor Buckalew will have your answer soon....( Usual fee applies )
Bill Phillips: She did and several others have confirmed her expert view. I have just downloaded an app that tells you what plants are!
Je ne connais pas non plus mais elle est très jolie.
Bill Phillips: It is Vinca or Periwinkle apparently Martine
Lovely pic of this! It looks like what we call Myrtle or Vinca Minor.
Bill Phillips: Your man said you would know!

Vinca Major, or Periwinkle
Bill Phillips: I have just downloaded an app that tells you what plants are! So it will be interesting in future to see if it is right!
I was thinking periwinkle, too, but not because I really know. HA! It's so lovely to see, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I have just downloaded an app that tells you what plants are! Apparently it is a ?Periwinkle according to our resident experts

I was thinking Vinca, Bill.
I love the tiny flowers on it.

Bill Phillips: You are right Lady P!

Vinca ..not sure if it major or minor ...in the scale of things.
Bill Phillips: I have just downloaded an app that tells you what plants are! Vinca seems to be correct

Vinca Minor or Major, also known as periwinkle. I have them in my garden too. They are ground covers that can easily grow in shade.

Great composition.

PS Minor or Major is about the size of the plant leaves and difficult to judge in a picture.
Bill Phillips: I have just downloaded an app that tells you what plants are! So I might know in future what the plants I photograph are!

Caught it on FB earlier, so i won't tell you again, Bill, not that you need me to!
Bill Phillips: You lot are far too clever
Periwinkle was my thought........they make a great carpet in shady areas.......nicely composed, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: If it isn't then a lot of people will have red faces gringrin
It is a very good shot Bill, Maureen hasn't got an app but she has a very good book to find out this sort of thing.
Bill Phillips: This app is quite good fun. You take a snap of the plant and upload it and it matches it to its database and tells you what it is. One day I may get to try it if we are ever let out again
The purple and green look splendid together.
Bill Phillips: I so agree Care

Amazingly, I have no idea what is either but it very pretty.
Bill Phillips: I would have expected you to instantly recognise this as purple flowery thing Alan
