Pretty Little Pansies

I've talked quite a bit about how much we love our PANSIES... This is the only annual that we plant now --since we have so many perennials.  (I used to plant Impatiens --but the rabbits kept eating it, so I gave up on that idea!)

We buy our Pansies in the late Fall --and plant them in the three round flowerbeds in our front yard ---and a few in other places around the yard.    Unless we have a VERY VERY cold winter (which seldom happens here),  the Pansies will make it through the winter---and will bloom until the heat of Summer kills them.

Today I'll share you some of this year's Pansies.   All of these pictures were taken around June 8, 2012.  Hope you enjoy seeing these little beauties...  The picture above is of our Lamppost Flowerbed in the middle of our front yard.  The Pansies are sharing space with all of our beautiful Lilies.  In the other flowerbed featured below,  the Pansies shared space with Daffodils...  Be sure and click on the pictures to see enlargements.

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the Pansies in our yard.  I am sorry to report that they are all gone now since we have had some horribly hot weather the past couple of weeks.  BUT--they are wonderful little plants to have around for about 8 months or more.   AND---they do provide a little color to our yard in the drab winter months.

Have a great day.
