A Welcome Face!


Pansies = Pensées = Springtime!

Here they are, a closeup from the pot outside the front door, some welcome faces of Spring after the winter from Hell. A welcome sight for sore and winter-blinded eyes!

  2. “Welcome” is an understatement!

    One of my favorite books as a child was called Peter Gets His Wish, a story about a little boy who wants his own flower garden, and whose mother buys pansy plants with their “little smiling faces that look right at him.” Peter picks all the blossoms for his mother and then, at bedtime, realizes there aren’t any flowers left in his garden. What a surprise he gets the next day when he finds there are more blossoms! I’ve loved pansies ever since, both for their smiling little faces and the fact that the more blooms you pick, the more they produce.

      That is quite a bright and shining pansy face, isn’t it? And since Pauline told me (see her comment) that pansies produce more flowers the more you pick them — there’s no stopping me —

  5. I am glad this long-awaited spring is finding its way to your neck of the woods.
