Violas pop up in all manner of spots in my garden and delightfully in all manner of colour combinations. Their membership of the Violet family is no surprise when enjoying the depth of violet in these wee pretties.
- Part shade
- Most soil types
- Low growing
- Attracts beneficial insects
- Small colourful flowers
These little stars are peppered all over the garden. They form a dense mat in the lawn and and in any garden beds. It can take some effort to weed them out. However they are also a pleasure to see sprinkled about, at times reminding me of the myriad of stars that are pinpoints in the night sky.
This bright little flower is probably a weed but who determines what is a flower and what is a weed can be a moot point. It is the colour of sunshine and we have lacked the real thing for much of this summer season so it stays to be enjoyed in the garden.
#1 Small flower in yesterday’s post was the flower head of garlic chives. #2 small flower is basking in the heat and sunshine this week.
Spring green is a colour!
And a wee splash of Lime Green too
The Tui are back at the feeders after a very quiet period in the last 4-6 weeks.
There are lots of conversations going on. Some friendly enough….
Others not so much
