Planting Hope

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I thought there was no better way to honor that than to buy the most hopeful, cheeriest flowers I know -
violas, johnny-jump-ups, and pansies.  They begin to bloom as the rest of the garden dies in late autumn.  They continue to bloom in the depths of winter.    

And how does anyone chose just one variety?

I am partial to blues and violets.

And continuing my theme of hopefulness...I planted daffodils - Minnow and Quail.  Also muscari and a species tulip.  Time and patience will be rewarded next spring.  Gardeners are, always, I think eternal optimists...looking forward to things not yet visable.
