Before I delve into the pansy extravaganza that is my front yard, I’d like to brag about the weather here in South Jersey. It is absolutely amazing. As I write this, it is close to 70 degrees, and the sun is shining. There’s a bit of wind, but nothing extreme.
What’s a girl to do on a day like this? Make weed bouquets, of course. I was out in the yard scattering morning glory seeds given to me by my mother-in-law when I came across these small, blue flowers. Enthralled, I picked a bunch along with my yard’s weed version of baby’s breath to put in a bud vase on the kitchen windowsill.
Much to my dismay, most of the flowers fell off before I could get the vase to the windowsill. I have no idea what that was about.
In addition to picking and displaying weeds, I went to Shoprite to pick up some butter. I came home with half a cart of food and 30 pansy plants. I couldn’t help myself. Pansies are my favorite!
I planted them along the edge of the mulch in my front yard for maximum exposure.
My front yard looks a whole lot better now that I’ve planted something colorful. If I’m lucky, maybe I’ll get to go to Home Depot this weekend to pick up more early bloomers. 🙂
