Heartsease and Pansies...


Heartsease
... what a beautiful name for these diminutive harbingers of Spring... today, I bought my first pot of them, the gorgeous purples ones I put in a galvanized bucket, along with a pot of purple and white Pansies on the step above...

Today my soul is in bloom... wishing you a beautiful Spring day... xoxo...

One of my very favorite flowers, Julie Marie--so happy they're in season once again! And they look so beautiful in your bucket!

Spring is definitely a feeling in your soul, isn't it? So glad you're feeling it too, my friend...

These are so pretty...I wish that I could have a little color on my porch, too, but snow is predicted. Just when we feel like spring is around the corner. But your flowers cheered me up and you, too, I'm sure. Thanks! :-)

XO,
Jane

Julie, my soul is in bloom, especially when I see your photos of pansies.

Country Gal said...

Lovely flowers on your porch. We will be able to do that soon, it was looking promicing but then we got hit by a snow storm with a mix of everything. If you let your heart bloom so does everything else around you. Have a great day !

Love your flowers! Are they easy to grow? I would definitely not call myself a green thumb, so I always try to find hearty plants that thrive with minimal care.

So glad spring is here, too bad our weather has turned cold again and may even have snow flurries this weekend.

Have a wonderful day, sweet friend.

Oh Julie Marie,
What a gorgeous display on your porch steps. The color is stunning and I love the name. Spring is coming to your home.
I am wishing to work in the garden too since our weather is so nice, but not able to yet. Not better at all~~~Tomorrow is my first test. It will be a long day.
Love to you,
Celestina Marie
