It's fall, so of course the mums must pretty themselves up!
But I must admit, as soon as there was the slightest chill in the air, it was pansies that I just had to get.
I adore the little viola ones, even though you have to see them up close to truly appreciate them.
Bonus points for whiskers!
They should last all through the fall and into the spring,
at least, as long as my kids don't notice them...
