Pansies are my absolute favorite fall/winter flowers.
Mr. Gherkin and I have started a little tradition of planting pansies together every fall. We've done it every year since we've been home owners so this would make it our fifth year of pansy-planting. We always pick a weekend, and we always do it together. It's something I look forward to each year.
This weekend we spontaneously decided it would be our pansy-planting weekend and we did just that on Sunday afternoon. I'm usually partial to the yellow pansies, but I switched it up this year and we planted a mixture of purple and white pansies.
Turns out that we planted pansies the very same weekend last year. How do I remember you ask? Well, because exactly one year ago this past weekend our main baby shower took place and we threw those pansies in just before our out of town guests arrived in town.
