The Last of the Pansies

The Last of the Pansies

Pansies are such a happy flower. And they have a fragrance that I love. They scream “SPRING” to me almost as much as snow showers in May.

But they do not last for very long. Warm/hot weather makes them go all leggy and insolent like a teenager and then you need to rip them out by their little roots and show them whose boss.

Today was that day.

But before I consigned them all to the compost bin I cut one last glass full of flowers. They won’t last all that long but whenever I look at them I will be reminded of Grandpa.



  1. Lovely post - great photo! My pansies are still doing well - today they are shivering with the cold and snow showers.

    1. Snow showers!! Of course it is 84F right now but it is supposed to be in the 50's by Friday.


Thank you SOOO much for commenting. We bloggers, of which I am such a minnow in such a big pond, live for our comments.
