Finally starting to bloom nicely in the sun.
My humble little flower bed
That looks really nice. Mine are popping up all over the place - I have a white one that I have NO idea where came from. I love the way the crossbreed and just go crazy.
I agree! That is one of the best parts of springtime. I love to see what new ones show up every year! Now if I could just keep the deer out of them! I would love to find a little white one!
Three border collies and all the farm buildings keep us out the deer cafeteria, along with the fields of clover between here and the woods.
I suspect my little white one came from a bunch I bought last year that got beaten down by a hot spell. This one is in a bed about 8 feet from where they were - maybe a bird assisted.
And don't I know it! This one is in a position that I think it really had some assistance. There are large pots and a multitude of plants between the two spots. I have violas in almost as many spots as I have hollyhocks and phlox - gardening in the lazy manner.
speaking of explosive seed pods, I brought three in last Saturday and put them in a small yogurt container. I was going to put something over the top of it, but didn't - pansy seeds all over the counter top in who knows where else!

Ha! the cabinets go to the ceiling, but there may be some behind the freezer. That could make for an interesting cleaning, "how did these pansies get back here??"
