Hey, Penny- Just checked out your blog. Fantasic. Creamy Spicy Chickpeas ASAP! -Susan
Awesome blog! Keep up the great work 🙂 I can’t wait to see future posts 🙂
Hi Penny. I read the recent article about you in Sunset. There was a photo from your garden with mint and pansies and I would love to know about the variety of the pansies, I’ve never seen any with that coloring. I would love to have some in my own garden, thanks!
Hello Jennifer! Thanks for asking. I believe that is a Viola Penny ‘Marlies’. They are very pretty. I love violas in my garden — and they are edible! Great decorations for cakes.
