I'm loving picking flowers for my garden at the moment. Most of the garden is taken up by a giant trampoline at the moment, but I still love the idea of the flower bed being full of flowers and herbs and veg for my kitchen. I have the sides of the garden lined with flower pots with last years plants waiting to bloom again and I have fairy lights along the fences.
I saw these lovely black pansies at a market and stopped in my tracks. They look completely black. They have a velvety feel to them and are so eye-catching. I picked up some stripy burgundy and fuchsia pink ones too for my flower beds, but this was my favourite. Reading about them, I found that no other flower gets this black. Apparently this is a very dark purple, but you can barely see the purple.
At the moment I am convincing Gorgeous they are real as he is adamant they could not be.
