pansies

http://www.alexareynolds.com/garden09/pansies1.JPGI planted a bunch of pansies in the back beds under the new oak-leaf hydrangea, and they're finally starting to blossom!  I'm finding that pansies and violas take a while to flower from the seedling stage, but if they're anything like the violas at the front door, they'll keep flowering like crazy once they get going.  They're still a bit thin at the moment but they should really take off now.

And for your enjoyment, here are my three favourites in close-up.

What beauties! Stop growing things from seeds, you're making the rest of us feel inadequate ;)

Nah when I tried to grow pansies from seeds, not one single seed sprouted. These ones were bought as seedlings!
