Seeing as though it's #white theme day I thought I'd do a bit of plant cataloguing of images I've not uploaded yet! Not everyone's cup of tea but I really love the variety of colours #pansy and #viola come in, and they flower pretty much all year round! 😀

Good afternoon all! Don't you think the #pansy is the most underrated plant in the garden? If you're after year round colour I just don't think you can beat them! Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! 😀

I've always loved pansies and insisted my mum get me some when she finally let me have my own flowerbed at the age of 8!

D'you know...I'm never quite sure 🤔 sometimes I really like them and sometimes I don't! No logic there I know! 🙈I do like the array of different ones though! 👍🏼 @bigemrg
