Brave Little Pansies

In a big pot near the front porch stairs, perky pansies lifted their pretty heads to the sun and welcomed spring.

Spring, of course, is now over and we are well into summer.

Plans to plant a different flower in the pot went awry.

However, the pretty pansies, albeit on the spindly side at this stage of the game, are still alive.

They really are sweet and unique flowers.

Their little faces look happy to me and I can almost hear them talking!

If brave little pansies can stand the stifling temps and sweaty humidity of summer in New England, so can humans!

I know here in GEORGIA - they grow 12 months a year. We even have them in winter. Do yours die?
I love them!
Hope you had a great day!
Love, sandie

Pansies certainly could not withstand the heat here. During the winter months, we are able to get petunias in several colors. They do well during our mild weather.

I know that I love, love, love pansies. They are such cheery flowers with their pretty faces. Oh, and to catch a whiff of that sweet fragrance when you bend your face close to them. That is sublime.

I know pansies need to be deadheaded if you want them to continue making new blossoms. If you don't deadhead the spent blossom, the pod goes to seed. And pinching back the spindly stems can encourage growth from the bottom and if the weather stays not too hot, they'll start all over again.

Thanks for your pansy post. It made my day!

I love pansies and doubly love that they grow here in the south in the winter. Yours are still pretty. xo Laura

Your pansies are still going strong in the Summer heat. I don't know a lot about pansies, but whenever I see purple ones, it makes my heart sing. They are the prettiest to me. : )
