Pretties





Just a few flowers for you this morning. Don't you love pansies? They are not as bright as the tulips, nor are they as bold as the daffodils, but to me they say "spring is here!" As much as I grumble about the winter, I am happy to live in a place where the four seasons are distinct. For how else could I love spring so much, without having to go through the cold and snow? So here are some pansies -- small, cheerful faces to tell us that spring is truly here. Hallelujah! :)

  1. Your pansies are so sweet and charming. I am so amazed by the resilience of a pansy. I have seen them encased in ice, and then nodding so pretty when the ice thaws.

    You always offer us such a pleasant start to our day. Thanks, Mary.

  6. Hello Mary,

    I am new in the blogosphere. I stumbled upon your blog about three weeks ago, and have loved it. You have inspired me to start a blog. I am comforted to know that I am not the only dish-aholic in the world. You have definitely surpassed me! :) I thought I would have to show you some of my dishes once I get a blog going. I just posted about my Spode dishes today on my blog. You are welcome come by and check them out if you have time. Thank you again for your wonderful blog!!

  8. Hi Mary,

    Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. It is SO exciting to receive a comment. You can tell I am definitely a newbie at this!

    Yes, I would be so honored to have you put my blog on your blog roll. I have actually already put yours on mine. I hadn't thought to ask you beforehand, sorry about the oversight.

  9. Ahhhh, pansies and gardens and sunny days! Spring is so late around here; still in the 30ths! :(

    Have you been mixing ingredients yet? Looking forward to see you at our "Dessert Carnival" on April 30th.

    Have a great day, Mary

  12. Oh yes, I also DO love pansies. I can't resist them and buy lots in autumn... and if they don't get eaten by slugs they grow and grow in spring, and last until June, or even further if the weather is not too hot. And they generally re-seed themselves ! Thanks for those beautiful pictures.

  17. To me what is so lovely and unique about pansies, is their sweet little pixie faces. They exude personality to me! Your photos are wonderful.
