My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away,
for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.
Song of Songs 2:10-13
It's coming to that time of year again when I plant my first annuals...Pansies! I can usually plant them in early March, so I'm counting the days till I can run down to our local nursery and pick some out!
They are such an easy flower to grow and are quite hardy. I love having them right by the front door for some beautiful spring color. All shades of purples and pinks are my favorites.
Here are Some Beauties
