In southern California we’ve been experiencing an unseasonable heatwave.
Nonetheless, I had a hankering to plant color in the yard.
On a somewhat cool Sunday morning I planted pansies and impatiens.
My neighbors said the pansies wouldn’t last more than a couple of days.
With a LOT of TLC, four days later they’re still hanging tough.
I love the delicate pansy bloom with it’s sturdy foliage.
And impatiens add a riot of color that’s hard to beat.
Surely winter will bring rain and freezing temperatures, but until then I’m going to enjoy our new family members . . .
