I bought these little pansies a few weeks ago but haven't planted them yet. I have enjoyed having them just sitting on my kitchen window sill though. I am reminded to water them everyday, (they are pretty much in my face, how could I not?) so they are staying cute and the blooms keep on coming.
We have been getting a lot of rain lately, as is most of the country. Fine by me. Oh, how I LOVE the rain! Especially at this time of year when my lawn is trying so hard to recover from the brutal winter, and do its best to green up for me because it knows how much I LOVE a green lawn!
I love being home on a rainy day. (And especially a dark and stormy day.) I would love to be home right now cleaning and organizing and listening to the sound of the rain.
This morning, as I was standing at my sink, looking out at my beautiful view of the mountains, I couldn't help but notice these little colorful "heads" and how they are all turned toward the window. Normally I recognize that they are reaching for the sun ... I love how flowers do that, don't you? But this morning, when I looked at them, I saw something completely different. I couldn't help but think how much they resembled little children, staring sadly out into the wet yard, with raindrops streaking the windows, (think Sally and her brother in The Cat in the Hat) wishing they could go out and play and that made me smile a really, really big smile.
