Those wallflower are making a real splash in the flower bed are'nt they Barbara, I love them. I love it when the scent reaches you from the other side of the garden on a mild day. I would'nt want my spring garden not to have them.
They were from SR Jasmine, glad they came up as the right ones or else I'd have not been happy seeing as I was rather extravagant & bought 30 of them, I always used to get them from Avon but they've stopped doing them for the past few years. I did e-mail Chris about them as they were their introduction & he said they stopped doing them because they don't come back the following year (& he's right they don't ,) apart from the ones I gave Mum she still gets a few come up each year.

I know, I loved that about it too Jasmine, maybe they bought the bulbs from a certain well known online site
Here's another angle of the area,
I am so impressed with the council, every roundabout and junction is full of lovely displays. Might go take some more pics later of the others. They normally do a good job but this year they really seem to be making a huge effort.
Wow theinsidegardener those roundabouts did'nt take long to come into bloom, they look fab! Seems T&M are everywhere with their mixed up colour schemes. I love the forget me nots all around as well and I'm sure the Wallflowers smell delicious.
I have yet to see a ladybird in my wildlife friendly garden, shame I did'nt take some with me when I was coming home .
Thanks very much for the noms Jasminetheinsidegardener, it's such a simple little plant but it stands out so well because of it's colour. I grow them pretty much every year. Unfortunately the catterpillars love them too.
Jasmine, those Red Riding Hood were bought new this year so I don't know if they'll come back or not. I hope they do but I'll enjoy them while I can.
