Beaux rêves


Cheerful pansies in our window box brighten up any day

Frost. Freezing fog. Dank air. Yuk.

Thank heavens for the marvellous Soft Tempo Lounge! Providing a much-needed "light music moment" as they whisk us off to exotic climes - it's You and I...


Ah, that's better.

    1. They've been blooming for months (in the window box) - and have stubbornly resisted everything the frost can throw at them! Jx

  2. I have a few violas dotted around the place, but not enough to distract from the bleak swathes of muddy borders, and swamp-like lawn. There is a lone geranium still putting out pale pink flowers, but I fear it will soon be mush.

    Your pansy (is it just the one, dear?) is like a small sun!

    1. We have two window boxes - one with these great gaudy yellow ones, and the other with the delicate Viola "Morpho" in full bloom. Just about everything else (apart from the bulbs: two snowdrops in flower and one daff so far with a bud) looks like boiled spinach or else brown and crispy. We do have a couple of pelargoniums tucked away, still alive and throwing out the occasional flower, but they look a bit worse for wear. Jx
