I planted blooming pansies and Nearly Dead ones on Saturday.
We have not had them in two years and have missed their happy faces.
I bought two flats of blooming ones.
Then found some Nearly Dead ones for half price.
You know that set my thrifty heart aflutter.
I returned one of the full price flats.
A good soaking of water and sun and Nearly Dead soon
becomes Lovely and Alive.
These in the terracotta pot, on the front stoop, will soon be thriving.
I declare folks at the store were looking at me with dread
with the dry pansies in my buggy.
They will be blooming within the week.
Got to have faith people.
When you purchase Nearly Dead plants it is important to remove all blooms
to promote growth in the roots.
The majority of my perennials were Nearly Dead once.
The pansies will bloom far into January.
Do you have a favorite fall or winter flower?
