Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

In Autumn 2018 I bought some winter flowering pansies, but never got round to planting them till early 2019. They were fine -flowered and looked lovely. I intended to take them out and replant with geraniums, but didn’t because I thought we were going to move house in June. That fell through but quite quickly we found a new buyer and I thought we would move house in October, which became, November and then December, and then we pulled out, as that house had a big problem. I left the plants in the tubs looking a bit sad. We found another house and thought to move in March and then April, and we all know what happened in April….. the weather turned very warm, and these incredibly sprang to life again and brought colour to my life. Which just goes to prove that new life is just round the corner if you just wait.

  11. I love pansies – they are much more resilient than they look. One year, the winter flowering ones hadn’t finished by the time I wanted to put the usual geraniums in the pots either side of the front door but I couldn’t bear to pull them out so there they stayed looking cheerful but, eventually, a bit straggly and wild.

  12. Love love love this post Cathy. A new life awaits you and your man – enjoy it😊

  13. Such happy little things!

  14. The faces on those pansies are just amazing, so clear!

  16. Very pretty and a lovely colour. I hope you take them with you when you finally move, they don’t deserve to be left behind πŸ™‚

  17. And there you go. Nature has all the answers. It can get grim out there and all of a sudden, life shows us it’s beauty. My pansies didn’t come back this year so far and I really miss them. Yours are so beautiful.

  18. When the time is right …. trite but true as these beauties prove ❀

  19. They’re a silver lining! I’m collecting the silver linings people are posting about – Marlene over at In Search of it All got me started with her latest post. So pretty, and an unexpected benefit of staying put for the time being….
