Pansy Faces

I spoke of simple pleasures in yesterdays blog. This morning I walked down to see my elderly parents and before leaving my Dad did his usual of pottering around the garden with me. He has planted huge beds of pansies and they all sat brightly in the sunshine today, even the blue ones looked merry as they displayed their funny little faces for an impromptu photo shoot.

I love the spring, with all its little bursts of colour and new life, it seems to spark new hope and smiles.


  1. Hi, I love these flowers ! I have two pots of them outside my frnt door and do you know, because they look like smily faces, I always have to talk to them on my way in or out ? I know it sounds mad but I swear they respond to a bit of light banter - they go all floppy when I'm not around (or is that a lack of water......) Anyway, love your pics !

  2. These are beautiful, such a wonderful array of colour. I need to get my skates on and get mine planted.
