Pansy ~ Alphabet Crazy

Every year I make sure I have different colors of pansies in my garden. Cannot say which are my favorite color. I like the two colored ones, purple and yellow. And this soft orange is nice against the green foliage.

Continuing with Alibb’s Alphabet Crazy Challenge with the letter P.

They are very tough flowers, I am not sure how the name pansy came about for them. So I did some research. Interesting what I found out.

Pansies are one of the earliest flowering plants, blooming right alongside the spring bulbs. The name pansy is from the French word pensie, meaning thought or remembrance. The pansy is a delicate looking flower often with a “face”.

Now you know the rest of the story about pansies. Some of the blooms do look like a face. Very cool!
