Tender Sweet Pansy

Little Purple Pansies
Touched with Yellow/Gold
 Growing in one corner of the Garden old
We are very tiny but must try, try, try
Just one spot to gladden you and I.
 I would sing this little song in my Church
When I was a child. . . .
Maybe that is why I love little Pansy flowers. .
 I think they are so tender and sweet.
Did you know the Pansy name is a French word
meaning "pensee"?
Which means
Thoughts.
The flower is thought to bring the
Thoughts of Loved Ones. . .
The myth is that you can see a
 Loved One
In the Face of A Pansy 
In Victorian times
A young man would send
His girlfriend a small
Pansy Bouquet which meant
 He was thinking of her!
Gosh I wish someone would send me a
Pansy Bouquet!
Enjoy the Pansies in your Garden. . .

  8. Thank you for telling the story behind the pansy. My grandmother used to say that pansies had faces, but I didn't know the whole story. Thank you for sending us a pansy bouquet and I do hope that you receive one yourself.

  16. Lovely pansy post. One of the reasons I like them is because they are hearty and can bear colder weather. They are the first to go on the pots on the porch...and of course the are just so pretty.

  17. I love pansies and plant them every fall. Sad to see them go mid-May here in the South because of the heat :(
