@jmlincoln never have much luck getting a hoverfly to stay still for a photo - and he chose the scruffiest flower to land on 🤣

@Mary200631 thank you Mary ☺️ they’re one of the few successes I’ve had this year. Had a nightmare with the last lot of seeds I sowed 😜 these I just sprinkle and leave to do their thing 😅

@Mary200631 pansies for winter 😍 they should grow well from seed and once they’re in they’ll repeatedly self seed so will never be without them 😛 I do the sprinkle method with them too 😂 direct sowing has given better results in the main 💚

@cyndi thank you Cyndi 😊 they’re the cutest little blooms. Just that horrid spongey foliage that is off-putting 😂
