I love the tidbit about pansy's curing heartbreak- oh to have known that sooner in my girl's lives. Think of all the wonderful colors of tea!

Beautiful. I used to plan them all the time in Texas......now we're in the Midwest and I don't think they'd make it.

Can't wait 'til Pansy time of year, but that probably won't be until mid March. We still have a bunch of snow that needs to melt. I have loads of wild violets in my yard during the spring and summer.

Kris said...

So pretty! Is it spring yet?

ps I have a giveaway going on my blog. Stop by if you can to enter!

I planted some pansies in the Autumn and I thought the recent snow and freezing temperatures would have killed them off...but no..the little beauties are flourishing.I love their little smiling 'faces'!

We've had a spring like day...note the use of the word 'day'; it was a Sunday, the sun shone....and then, as if a dream, it was gone.

We woke up on Monday to a milder day but with rain and darkness. Today, the frost appeared. But I'm hopeful because I heard some birds singing; it made me smile.

Pansies are beautiful, just like you. xx

Julie Harward said...

I LOVE THEM...DO YOU KNOW THE SONG ABOUT THEM? MY MOM LOVED THEM AND SHE USED TO SING IT TO ME..."LITTLE PURPLE PANSIES TOUCHED WITH YELLOW GOLD, GROWING IN THE CORNER OF THE GARDEN OLD, WE ARE VERY TINY BUT MUST TRY TRY TRY, JUST ONE HEART TO GLADDEN, YOU AND I."
I DON'T KNOW IF WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER OR INTO THE JANUARY THAW...STILL NO SNOW HERE! COME SAY HI :D

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Hi Koralee!
Pansies are my first spring purchase!
I love their tender sweetness~

It snowed 5" here on Sunday night... The temps today were warmer though (almost 40°F)...

Thank You, Koralee, for helping me smile through January with *pansies* in my heart!

Pansies, in BC? You must get some warm and moderate breezes. They wouldn't last here in the lower midwest USA. You have a beautiful blog, I need to visit past posts. glad to find you!

Heather Cameron said...

Blimey Koralee are you trying to curse this nice weather - planting a pretty flower is going to make it snow! heee hee. Just kidding. Pasies for the Olympics sound lovely to me! Vanoc won't like them though.

trishie koh said...

Koralee you are just such a delight and your posts are just so endearing.
I LOVE pansies and so good to know that they can cure a heart break if I ever need one cured.
