Over the weekend I had a sudden burst of wanting to spruce up our garden. I don't have a very consistent green thumb, but when I get the urge, I get very excited. I had so much fun getting my hands dirty. At the nursery some purple pansies caught my eye and I knew I just had to buy them, for they were my grandma's favorite flower. Today just happens to be her birthday, so here are my pansies in honor of sweet Nellie Mae.
