Yeah it's a viola soroia
called 'freckles' and it's super cute! I actually got it off ebay when it was teeny tiny, but now it's a huge plant! Had lots of tiny spotty flowers on it this year but it's finished flowering now. I'm going to dig it up and take it with me when we move... Hope it survives!
The snowball bush is behind my mum! And I think it's just called a snowball tree, that's what we called it anyway. Hang on, I'll Google... Yep it's a viburnum opulus 'Roseum' aka snowball tree. We (or rather mum, because I tried to save it!) had it chopped down last year so it's sadly no more.
No, never had streptocarpus! I've looked at them but never went for one. Bit gangly I think. I do like my African Violets! I did have three (I've got a pink and white ruffly
one too, not in the photos) but my brother accidentally murdered one of them (the plain one, luckily, not the super pretty one!) by over watering it when I went to Prague.
Less windowsills for houseplants in the new place, so some of my plants are going to have to come to work with me! Means no more orchid buying too.
And no, getting a smaller garden, unfortunately. No veggie plot. There's lots of bushes in the new garden so we're going to pull some up to make room for flowers and possibly fit some veg in.
