Ok the other pansy thread was pretty long so let me start another one.
Here's Gem Antique Shades already blooming on a tee ninny plant. It was open yesterday and looked alomost like the Velour Frosted Chocolate.Sorry 'bout the blurry pix
Nice, I seeded purple rain pansies, but they are not up yet
I seeded these last fall and then some more in Dec. They're ready for spring just like me.*S*
I just came acrossed on called Autumn Frills....Burpees exclusive..... very pretty! It has a nice picotee ruffle. Vary dainty edge compared to the doubles like Moulin Rouge.
The rim of the flower is a pretty lilac the face is brite yellow and the blotch is a really neat veiny near black purple.
Spring was yesterday, I hear you still got winter!
Don't start with me again! I ain't looking! Your a bad influnce!....LOL
Spring doesn't officially start until March 21st.
I been telling 6"2' that fer years....
Whooooops thas 6'2"

Oo,nu-nu...don't whraaaaash the turkeytails. Them purdy lil fungi.
Front or back legs?
regular size but fiesty...don't know what the gnomes or plants that USE to be there,did to them. On their turf,I guess. Use to have 4-get-me-nots,micro mini hostas and ferns planted there but gone...all gone now.
LOL! Man, what ever they did to them, sure did tick them off!
Soz anyways, hows the pansys going?
I lost about half of the ones in pots.. drat!
But theones in the garden might make it. They were under snow and rightnow the snow is gone and they are looking a tad yeller.
They quit growing in those teens tempts back in Jan(or was it Dec?). I just finished potting up the last yesterday and hop they start growing again. They had good roots. The Velour Chocolate Frost I sowed back in Dec. look better than the ones I started late last year so maybe it wasn't such a good idea to sow them early winter.
Well, I found my seed.. best get on it.
I raked the dog park and got tons of leaves...OY! ANd found my garden strawberries. Gonna Yank a few of those out as soon as I clean up the mess.
Im running between the rain drops
Last year the only way I kept pansies from the squirrels was to mulch them with broken clay pots - 2-3 inch pieces at the smallest - especially those in pots and planters. The squirrels really trashed the others.
I feel for ya. I'm rural and near a lake surrounded by woods so they are horrible out here
I'm finally getting some of mine in the ground(and pots). I put out Penny Peach jump-ups in one of the beds by the curb. Hobbit Pippin Took in the pot w/ Green Goddess calla and in a another bed under my scotch brair rose,Velour Frosted Chocolate in a mixed container w/ purple oxalis,var.lysimachia and dwarf var. Jap. sedge and yesterday planted out the Frizzle Sizzle Blue and Yellow. Still tons to go.
We stopped at a nursery yesterday and OMG! The huge primulas, pansys and snaps they had out already.
For real Blossom or is this an April Fools Joke??? I'll bet its for real. Makes those days in January seem like a distant memory.
I have put pansies out in past years about now and will probably pick some up after this weekend. We have had great temperatures this year and the weather long term outlook looks like the above average temps will continue. Pansies can handle freezing temps down to -8ºC, which is 18ºF. I just put the pots inside some of the containers around the yard, front door entrance etc. In May, I transplant them into the ground in the cooler spots in the flowerbeds.
I believe ya Blossom. My parents live in Zone 5A and the pansies are already out for sale. My pansies are still looking great, but things will go downhill with them by late May. It always happens at that time of the year. You go from "Wow, everything looks great" to "Oh my god, what happened!!!" within a months time.
Its called the Reserection Jon, Thank GOD, it spring and things are bloomin'
I have dafs and pansys blooming.. had some crocus...
Potting some glads
