Ab ..like your photo...can you tell me the name of the plant just off centre & to the right of pic as you look at it...has a little purple flower...someone gave me the same a few weeks back ..but didn't know the name...if its the same as mine it tends to have an almost furry leaf...thanks in advance.. :D

PS... the plant I am referring to reminds me of a violet!!
