It's time for pansies! Last month I brought home a few flats of pansies. I couldn't resist. My friend Beth, who is a great gardener, told me to march right back to Lowe's and return them. She said it wasn't cool enough yet and that she always waits till Halloween. Well, I couldn't wait so last weekend I returned to Lowe's and bought pansies, violas and arugula for good measure. The purple violas are so regal in a beautiful pot and the pansies are always my favorite picked and put in a tiny vase in the window. My mom always said, "the more you pick them the more they grow" that may be from the same book of "the more you trim your hair the faster it grows" but who cares...they are a happy touch in the window.
