Pansies in the garden…..

 

“If flowers could smile, they'd all be pansies.”

I have always loved pansies, violas, johnny jump ups and violets. Sweet little faces and just a hint of fragrance. The flowers are edible and taste like grapes and mint.

I am joining Mary today at Little Red House for this weekly event.

Those who follow me know how I like to manipulate photos and how I love to make collages and mosaics.

Your mosaics are great, I am a fan. I am just learning how to have fun with them, and just wish I had more time to play. Love your blog! Stop by mine (salls-country-life.blogspot.com/). It's a work in progress.

How pretty!! I was thinking about pansies today. I planted some one fall when I lived in Washington DC, and they were so pretty through the snow, and on into spring. I also had pretty mums there that seemed to grow and grow. I have not tried pansies here yet, but I do have mums I'm hoping will bloom this fall. Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you are doing well!

I love pansies, Carol, but I never tried to eat them. I'll try some the next time they bloom in my garden. Your mosaics are beautiful!

Beautiful mosaic. When I was young I always asked my mother to buy "face Flowers". I still do buy them.

Pansies have always been my favorite flowers. There's such variety of color and each sweet pansy face is like a painting. I'm looking forward to looking at some of your quilts. Glad t hear that your new hip is enabling you to walk without pain! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Beautiful mosaics. Most of my pansies die as soon as it gets too hot. I have a few in a shady area that survived.

Suzanne said...

How pretty!! You REALLY know photos. I'm still a newbie;)
