Beautiful! I like them too. It amazes me how they can bloom when it is still cold - makes winter a tad more bearable for me.

I tend to think of them like I do impatiens...nice for a spot of colour when you need it but not as long term additions to a bed.
Having said that, yours look great!

When I was a little girl we were given a little pot of pansies, for planting at home, every Easter during Sunday School. I am inclined to like pansies regardless, but those Easter memories make them rather dear to my heart.

I don't know why weak men are called "pansies." Pansies are very tough little plants.

We had a few days when the temperature went down to -15C (5F) but not for very long.

The flowers were occasionally covered in snow but that didn't do them any harm.

Oh OK.

This is a book we have from 1955 made up of typos and misprints, is that any better?

We call the little ones this size "johnny jump ups" - more violas than pansies. I love them, as they generally seed themselves and it takes a really cold winter to kill them.
