Yellow, purple, and light blue Violas were a great choice in Shelagh's knot garden. Dwarf yellow Daffodils can just be seen coming up in the middle bed and go particularly well with the Dark Purple Violas (with the yellow eye).
The purple Pansies and orange Violas in the Venus head bed didn't do so well this year. Either there were not enough to start with or the Pansies just didn't thrive. Usually the Violas are more robust here, but the orange ones just didn't show. I suggest all Viola's next year.
A pale yellow variety from Scotland.
The best aspect of all is that the garden is visible from under the kitchen now that the doors are removed.
And we have access to the kitchen through these doors which were retrofitted from previous location above.
