Violas

 Violas are such cheerful and robust little fellows
Unlike the fat headed pansies that resemble them .. I detest those
I’ve planted them out in pots around cyclamen of varying shades of pink and red and have placed them on the kitchen wall with enough gaps in between so that the regular gifts of tomato’s and the like can be left with ease.

It’s been a nice day, most of which I’ve missed after an extra Night shift
Lunch out with friends and Chic Eleanor tomorrow
Tonight already I’m lighting the fire against the already crisp autumn evening as I watch the live action Beauty and the beast on tv

Tonight I’ve been watching Carrie Fisher give tribute speeches on YouTube 
What a wonderful orator she was
I became quite tearful at her power and intelligence 
Tearful because I’m tired

    Why would you detest pansies (if I interpret the typo "th3mandwhch" correctly) when you say they resemble a flower you like? Just curious. Simply because they have "fat heads"?

  10. Sleep well, and have a restful day tomorrow.
    I love violets, too, but let them get a toe-hold in the garden and they will take over!

    Methinks I'll get some viola seeds as I love self-seeding flowers and these are so pretty. I like pansies, too, but they are annuals and my ability to tend the garden is very limited. We do have some sweet violets and I don't care where they spread - they're lovely!
    Sweet dreams!

    Hugs!
