Teeeheeee! I love these as well and they are the first flower we see in window boxes here! They tolerate cooler temps and by the looks of it, Spring may come sooner than we think! NO SNOW DEAREST! Good morning sweet friend. It is FRIDAY KORALEE! Are you dancing? Are you squealing with JOY? MADAME RIVERA IS! WOOOOOOOOOOOO Bring it on.

SMILES! Anita

I love them too. Mostly the iceberg pansies as they are one of the first flowers you can have in pots outside in the spring. They are so beautiful. Love the nickname - makes them even sweeter.

Shelley in SC said...

That is hilarious!! I keep them in sweet little bottles on my kitchen ledge. Now I know to keep one eye on them and one eye on the pantry when anyone is in my kitchen!!

It's me said...

I have such wonderful memories of pansies growing in our church flowerbed when I was little. I imagined they each had little faces.

The Garden Bell said...

I did not know that. And that is a good fact to know. But, what I really want to know is just where the heck are you finding a pansy in January.

Victoria said...

Hi Koralee,

Pansies are one of the sweetest flowers and they are one of my favourite flowers to grow.
Had not heard the nickname before, so thank you and love that.
Have a happy weekend

Hugs

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
This is such an adorable name for a flower... especially thinking of Valentine's Day! Oh... now how I wish I had a pantry to pin this photo to :o)
Pansies would make a great "mistletoe" for Valentine's Day!!!
This time of year, I may only find the silk variety ~ but it's the thought that counts!
Happy Weekend my dear! I hope this one is for relaxing ♥
Blessings & Joy, always*
~Maria

That IS cute!! Pansies are also one of my daughter's favorite flowers. I think it comes from her time spent with Grandma in her garden.

Although I don't like snow, you have made it sooooo inviting ....I must say I used to stand out in the woods in the deep of cold, and listen to the snow. It has a silent sound, but it is a sound! Thanks for awesome photos, I have been away too long! Love and warm hugs for the cold days, Aunt Paulette

malia said...
