Smiling Pansies




Here in the south, we plant pansies to last through the winter.
I have orange ones in containers on our front porch.
I also like the deep red ones by the mailbox.
They're a good fall color,
but also a good Christmas-y color,
to take us right through the winter.

It never fails to bring a smile to my face
when I look out into the cold on a winter's day,
to see the happy little faces of pansies
smiling up at me.

I love pansy's too...when they peek through the first snow is so pretty!!!
It does my heart good to tour around the gardens that are linked into my little party...I so wish every one of the people who share lived close enough that I could walk the gardens in person. Thank you so much for sharing with me this week...I hope you will again very soon!
I am sharing this post on my Facebook page for Tootsie Time
Hugs and smiles from Alberta Canada to you!
