Happy Heartsease

What happy little flowers! I simply adore Johnny-jump-up(-and-kiss-me), or heartsease pansies. They are wonderful edible flowers, attract bees and butterflies, and can be used medicinally too. I’ve got many growing in between the mixed herb greens of my lettuce garden, so that I can always remember to pick a few to toss into a salad.
