In a vase on Monday: pansies

In a vase. . ., April 4, enclos*ure

DSC03851Easy: purple pansies from the Degerloch farmer’s market, little purple pot.

To see what other gardeners have put in a vase (or a pot) today, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting, its roses—
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:

For now, while so quietly
Lying, it fancies
A holier odor
About it, of pansies—
A rosemary odor,
Commingled with pansies—
With rue and the beautiful
Puritan pansies.

— Edgar Allen Poe, from “For Annie

  1. I have never come across that poem by Edgar Allen Poe before – thanks for bringing it to my attention. And your pansies are such a pretty colour – I am not fond of the bright coloured ones with big blotches but these are delightful – thanks for sharing
