Baby Seedling Blossoms

My first Violas among their own foliage and among Iceland poppy foliage. Spring is near.

Violas are smaller than pansies, so they're a close-up show, but they last longer into the spring when the weather gets hot than pansies do.


  1. I love violas and will be buying a flat or two of them as soon as they have them for sale at the garden centers. I put them in containers on my front porch, so I'm usually the first person in the neighborhood to have something blooming outdoors in the spring.

  2. How lovely, a taste of Spring is a welcome sight up here where we still have snow.

  3. I wish my violas would come back each year. I have had some do so in the past, but not for more than a few seasons. I have decided I like them as well as pansies. I like to have some of each.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
