Pansies and Me--The Dynamic Duo
I bought myself some pansies at the Walmart the other day and planted them in the pots by my front door. I love pansies and violas--those flowers have some kahunas. They are the first flowers to bloom after winter and the last to wilt in late fall. They dare the weather to beat them, and it rarely does. I like that about them.
I put away my winter coat on April 1 and have refused to put it on since. Okay, so I'm freaking freezing with the cold and snow, I just won't let go of spring no matter how much winter wants to stick around. And wearing that winter coat tells the world that I have not embraced spring. Or I'm an idiot. A cold idiot.
Me and the pansies--we are sticking together on this one. It's spring, damn it, and we are enjoying it in spite of the cold.
