Pansy

Earnest inspired me to post a shot I recently took of a a white pansy growing 'wild' in our front landscaping.  I recall my wife had purchased pansy's a few years ago and they keep seeding themselves, so we get great flowers for free! I think pansy's are the Rodney Dangerfield of flowers - they don't get any respect.

I love pansies, and your picture is so perfect. Such happy plants, and no, they don't get the respect they absolutely deserve.

So cute - had to come this far to see one! We have crocuses blooming in the garden, nothing else.
