Magical Vincas by FaerieBert Magical Vincas by FaerieBert
This is one of the vincas from my garden. You might also know them as periwinkles or Madagascar periwinkles. I think they are very cute little plants. They went absolutely wild this year, and I have had a lot of fun taking photos of them.

I tried a new way of editing, and I must say I really like how it came out. I have always wanted to give my photos that soft, 'romantic' look, and I finally found a tutorial here on dA that showed me how to do it in in PS Elements. I hope you guys enjoy it! :D
