Don't these pansies look nice altogether? Last Wednesday we called in at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire. It's a National Trust property and quite unusual in that it has been preserved in a state of decay and the contents are just as the last owners left it - quite amazing, particularly the attics which are full of old trunks and toys. It has superb gardens and grounds to walk in. The pansies are in the 'Auricula Theatre' (only it has pansies and not auriculas at the moment - I have seen it with auriculas in previous years - click on the link above and there are lots of photos of the house and garden in the gallery).
Meanwhile I've been plugging away at the Depression Top quilting - thanks so much for all the kind comments on my quilting (though I should say that the picture I showed does show it in the best light and that it probably wouldn't stand up to very close scrutiny to say the least).
