The Pansies and Dave

The first flower basket of the season for me is usually pansies .. who doesn't love pansies ? .. and yellow on top of it all just seems to shout SPRING !!!! .. as long as they don't shout too long or too often for Dave. He just wants to sit quietly on his mushroom and contemplate life in general .. specifically that he has been elevated from the "boys in the 'hood" for a while .. after all .. he is the old man of the group, so much deserving of a break from the boys (who are grumbling but admit Dave needs a rest ?) .... aaahhhh ! Mr. Dave and yellow pansies ... sweet !

Hey Dave, is that a smirk I see cracking in the corner of your mouth? Fess up now, I bet you just love screaming yellow pansies :-)

"Miss Melanie .. between you, me, and this bench .. I have NO say in what her "Majesty" sits me by .. I just have to go with the flow .. BIG sigh !"

I can't wait to get some pansies, and of course they have to be yellow. Hey Dave, I bet you are feeling pretty good sitting there on your mushroom beside the pansies.

Hi Crafty .. sitting on a mushroom seems to be the cure for all that ails Dave ? LOL ... plus the scent of the pansies .. that has to do some good doesn't it ?

Pansies are some of my favorite flowers. I get some every year. I had one that was penny something or other pinkish purple petals. I want to find some more. Every year I intend to dry my seeds that I've harvested but they either seem to get lost or tossed. I managed to keep them one year and they turned moldy. Oh well, we have to do our part to help keep the growers in business, right?

Hi Cinj .. I have the same bad luck with seeds you do .. I tried with the Black Eye Susan vine .. poof .. gone or unusable .. so unless it is in a package .. it won't work for me ? haha
Pansies .. yup ! gotta' have them !

I love pansies too...I even have some on my doorstep...Even though I said on my blog that they're cliche'.
(Well, they are...but I don't knock anyone in the North who has them right now, cause it's all we've got) !!
