Fall in Tennessee means it’s time for pansy planting! These cheerful flowers stay blooming through most of the winter. They slow down a bit when it gets really cold (if it gets really cold here), but then perk back up once it warms up for a few days.
When I first moved here, I used to plant them in my flower beds. When spring came, however, I hated to pull them up, because they still looked so good, but I had to make room for other flowers that were starting to pop up. I’ve since come up with a solution. I plant them in pots, which hang off of my front porch. This way, when they are starting to look at little tired from the spring heat, I can replace them with annuals.
Don’t they make you smile, just looking at them?
