Aletta - I just love these little ones - I had them for years and then when we moved to Paarl I planted some in the garden but they went missing before the flowers even opened - the resident tortoise thought they tasted very nice..................I was without any plants of them for years till our Abby sent me some seeds and now they are all over again - and even if the tortoised do munch on them I've got lots growing in pots out of harm's way ;D

They are lovely Rena  :)
Mine are still to come ... fingers crossed.
Always thought the difference between a "pansy" and a "viola" was in the size of the bloom but have recently found out that

Although the names ?pansy? and ?viola? are interchangeable to many worldwide ...
 there is a botanical difference between these two plants .... but the simple visual difference is that pansies have four petals pointing upwards, and only one pointing down, while violas have three petals pointing up and two pointing down.

Never regret anything that made you smile.
