Thanks Terratoonie, I actually agree considering they are something that has come up of their own accord.

I hadn't heard the term Johnny Jump Ups before joining GoY.
Is that phrase used often for these in your part of the world. ?

I couldn't say accurately about that Terratoonie but most people I know call this particular lot Johnny Jump-Ups. Hopefully that answers your question somewhat.

Yes, thanks.
Seems to be a well-used term in the region where you live.

I remember these as weeds in the gardens years ago. You don't see them often now.
I always left them alone because I like them.

I've just added this photo to my favourites.
Hywel ~I agree.
Such very pretty flowers with little faces. :o)

I find that any garden bed that has had pansies or viola's in them eventually get these coming up in them but like you Hywel I leave them in because I like them.

Yes these are the cute little ones slightly smaller than the average viola.
