I love my green ceramic dish and usually I use it for that much loved dish Lasagne, today it’s serving up something quite different. Namely, my latest non-edible love.. Dorotheanthus bellidiformis ‘Sparkles Series’, mixed – I have just fallen deeply in love with these absolutely gorgeous little flowers. Grown from seed in the home garden this spring and coming into their own now. The Hover flies love them too and they do truly sparkle in the sunlight. A darling little plant that will surely bring a smile to any face.
