Pansies are back

One of the pure joys of spring is the return of the pansies.  We
bought two pots of pansies for the planters on either side of
the front porch steps.  It is still super cold, so we take them
in at night. But what a treat to walk out the front door and see
them in bloom.  

I picked some, and started a pansy painting tonight, but it's
been a busy day, and I didn't get time to finish it.  So I'm
showing you another one.  Here's to a happy eclipse tomorrow.

Have a loving your life day.

Gorgeous 😀❣️❣️❣️ I am so glad some of my pansies made it through this cold winter. We did protect them well and they are beginning to bloom. Such a happy flower ❣️❣️❣️

Thank you Evelyn,

We can't keep them during the winter, so we're glad they're back.
