Pansies on the Easel

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea.  We are so blessed with lots and lots of rain this year after 5 years of record drought.  Our flowers love the rain especially our winter pansies.

Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden in between rain showers to see what is growing.

Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those following my blog.  

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,

                                          "For the Lord gives wisdom."  Proverbs 2:6

Everything is so lovely Erin. Little Bentley is adorable as ever. You are so lucky to have year around garden time. I cannot wait for winter to end and Spring and Summer to arrive. Enjoy that beautiful garden.

Just beautiful, as always. Pansies always bring a tear to my eye. They were my mother's favorite flower.

Have a glorious day!

What a beautiful spring-like vignette, Bentley is adorable as usual. Your flowers are just so lovely, a welcome floral feast on a cold day here.

Oh Erin, your pansies are beautiful and everything looks so fresh and clean. Love your chair with all your pretties around. Bentley is always on the look out for you.

Enjoy our rain we are getting tomorrow. Stay dry.

Hi Erin - lovely pansies and way ahead of mine here, although a few blooms are popping out this week - along with daffodils - as it has been unseasonably warm for our area of NC. Chilly again last night though and we had to push the heat up!

Sweet Bentley looks handsome as always. I actually saw his look-alike being walked yesterday by a young lady nearby - and she had a second pup who looked almost identical - paler fur and perhaps younger. Such gorgeous dogs.

Hope life is good and all is well in your sunny corner of the country.
Mary -

Pansies are my favorite spring flower to put out. Last spring they lasted into summer. Your post was a wonderful reminder that spring will come again. Hugs, LJ

I love Bentley! And your plethora of pansies make me smile!

Beautiful paintings! I can't wait until it's time to plant pansies here. Counting the days!

My pansies and primrose are looking sad after all this rain!
