Periwinkle- #JusJoJan the 10th, 2023

Welcome to the daily prompt! Today is your tenth prompt for Just Jot it, January 2023, brought to you by Maggie. Thank you, Lauren! Please visit Maggie’s blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan, January 10th 2023, is “periwinkle” Use the word “periwinkle” any way you’d like. Have fun writing!

Now, I know periwinkle is a colour. I even know it is a flower. (Clever me!)

But I didn’t know it was also the name of a small edible whelk!

Of course, I know what a winkle is…. but I didn’t know it was short for periwinkle!

You learn something new every day!
