Periwinkle

12 Dec

This post should be accompanied by a phot of Periwinkle.
For Periwinkle is a fish. It is the one fish that survived being born in our fish tank. All the others were eaten by the parents or the other fish that were celebrating the birth of all the fish.
There is no picture because it is difficult to photograph this small fish. He/she is quite shy and likes to stay hidden in the weeds and the flora that grow in the tank. This is no doubt why Periwinkle is alive today.
My daughter gave the fish the name Periwinkle. The fish is not a pale shade of purple/blue. It’s colour is flame orange. But my daughter insists that that is the name. I have no objections and the fish has not expressed any. So Periwinkle is the name.
The one that survived the feast.
