I planted a punnet of violas (or pansies I forget which) months ago. And like every year, just as I begin to think they are a dud they start to produce delightful flowers in abundance.
And Julie, to save you asking, I don't know what the red flowers are but they are little beauties also, last year's plants reflowering.
Matthew 6:7 (New International Version)
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
