These delightful blue pansies fill in all the spaces in the spring Middle Garden. When they've flowered I pull them out and cut them up for mulch. They'll sow their own seedlings, and so I'll have yet more blue pansies to enjoy.
Blue pansies are some of my very favourite flowering annuals - I'll sometimes buy in seed packets to get different or new varieties. I also collect seed from my own plants.
Spring blues? Not the sad type, with these generous little flowers around.
