I love pansies! They are a 'cute' flower, rather than pretty, I'd say...a little memory to share, my grandmother must have loved them too because she always had one in a vase on the kitchen table.
She would say to me, "if you're real quiet, and watch it closely, it will wink at you."I think now, it was probably a ploy to get me to be quiet, of which it worked... So to this day I always have a pot of pansies on my front step to remind me of my grandmother. In Victorian times, most flowers were given a meaning...Pansy means remembrance.
