Today's Flowers: Pansies doing well around town


Photobucket

I love pansies and this time of year the beds and planters at shopping and office centers have a lot of pansies, replacing the spent summer flowers.

I like the way pansies can survive as the weather gets cooler and even do well in light snow and frost.

Pansies don't make it all the way through the winter here but do last longer than almost any other flower. The rose below is one of mine.

Pansies don't show up here till around April 15th. LOL A few years ago there was a big hoopla about Icicle Pansies that you could plant in the fall and enjoy and then they'd return in the spring. A few came back up in April...but mostly not. LOL

What I like about pansies are their variety of colors..

Mine are local flowers in the Land of the Morning Calm.

They last very late here too. Last year I had a couple overwinter and they were some of the nicest I have grown.

They are so beautiful, it does come in different colors too, right? I like the one from your garden too.

They don´t last here in Sweden, but when I lived in London I had pansies (yellow and blue, like the Swedish flag) outside the entrance the whole winter. Thanks for sharing!

When I lived in Virginia I always loved pansies in the fall.
I love your macro shot and that shot of your rose is stunning!

What a great blog. I've looked at all the photos on this page. Cute birds, especially the unknown ones on the tree in a bunch. I've seen those very birds when I lived in Northern California and wish I knew the name. Great flower pix alsol

I never thought of these for this time of year. Usually we see those colorful cabbages and that's it. These are delightful, sunny shots.

Gail just planted our pansies last weekend.

We are newbies to NC this year, so it's a wonderful surprise to see things flowering at this time of year, like our camellias, and to be planting stuff in November!

They certainly are a hardy little flower and your photos show just how beautiful they are. Thanks for sharing them Carver. Have a great week.

Thank you Carver. Those purple pansies remind me of my grandfather who planted many in his beautiful garden, besides purple being my favorite color. As a tot, I'd play and marvel at the palette of colors. Upon any return visit as I grew to a mom, I'd still smile at his garden. He is gone now, so your photos are extra special. Lovely photos!

the colors are very catchy, something you won't miss during your walk =)
