Flowers From Our Yard: Pansies



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Our pansies have recovered from the snow and cold of the past two months and are now blooming in the sunshine of the past few days. It's wonderful to see these cheery blossoms in various places about the yard.

How wonderful, George to have pansies in the garden. We are waiting for the crocuses and daffodils. They are about to appear now any day!
Thanks for your sympathy with the people of Christchurch.

Hi George, Pansies are such cheerful plants. Thanks for sharing this morning.

Pansies have been a childhood favorite of mine! I've even learned to paint them and have done so on some antique pieces. So now I can have them all year round!
Have a fabulous day!

Pansies are the do-all and most forgiving plant aren't they. Ever cheerful. MB

You are making me feel very jealous, George. It's snowing here and we are expecting more snow tonight so I guess I will continue to post mostly white and grey photos for a while. :)

How adorable in the bleak mid-winter!! We have just never had any luck with them, but I think we plant them when it's still too hot, I'm trying again this fall.

How lucky you are to be having such early blooms like this. I never had much luck with pansies, but yours are doing great.

In your garden now? Oh my - envy here.
I've been watching for crocus and hope the deer didn't find them before I saw them. :)

Oh I am sure they brighten your day George with their pretty yellow heads And I feel sorry for them having to sit outside in the cold.
