    They're lovely, but they can be a bit invasive if they have the right conditions, so it depends how you feel about them  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Thanks Fairygirl, they are currently in a small patch in my grass so hopefully they will be kept under control by the mower. If not I will have to dig out 😀
