I found a pair of pansy blossoms peeking out of a planter box on my deck this morning, coaxed from their winter's rest by the unseasonably warm weather we've had lately. It's quite chilly today, so they may regret having shown their colors so soon; they look a bit worse for the wear.
I wish I had seen them yesterday, when surely they would have been fresh-faced in the balmy (for January) 60 degree temperatures. I was too busy cleaning to take notice of them.
Heart's Ease. Surely a sign that things are looking up!
