Yeah, they're so tiny, if you didn't look close you wouldn't even notice the dots 😊 It's in a little space I call Grandma Corner, all original plants donated by my other halfs grandma 👵😁 @joolzd1970

It's good to see them again @Keely, last year I was overrun with Lesser Yellow Underwing moth caterpillars 🐛 which chewed most of the stems before they could get going.

Aw, one of mum's favourites, she used to get me to count the spots in the flowers to keep me busy when I was younger! She always has it in her garden, I'll make sure I plant one in my new rockery! #memories
