After a failed attempt to grow pansies in my small garden plot last year, I decided instead to grow tulips. I wanted to grow each flower from seed (or bulb), yet all the pansy seeds last year failed to germinate. I fear they may have ended up in birds’ stomachs. This past Thursday, Mark surprised me with a box of yellow and purple pansies! They fit perfectly on the small ledge under the photo I keep up of my mother year-round. I will rotate the box to show off the pansies in their best angle. There’s my mumsie, overlooking her favourite flowers.
