Each autumn Betsy and I plant pansies in the three small flower beds in our front yard. They provide color from autumn through the winter and into spring. This year the pansies survived a hard winter but bounced back in March. This picture was taken in April and the pansies lasted through the heat and humidity of June, but have finally given up the ghost.
