Laurie, how come your 'Willy' looks bigger than mine ;)

Looks like your Veronica is a austriaca ssp. teucrium Hungarian Speedwell, looks great with the Snow-in-Summer! I'll have to remember that combination when I do some dividing this spring.

Great photos everyone!

Savona, could be our cameras or computer monitors making a difference?
William Baffin has deep pink semi-double blooms and William Booth is single medium red to deep pink blooms with a white eye.
