For someone who isn't much of a gardener, I've certainly been blogging about gardening a lot lately (yes, I love flowers, but weeding? Not so much). At any rate, today I planted some pansies in our whisky barrel. Hopefully, it's not too soon and they'll survive. I don't know that much about pansies, but the folks over at What's the Dirt? have all kinds of fun facts about them, including their meaning and history, along with some gorgeous photos.
For some less brilliant photos, here are the ones I planted:
I think I need to plant a few more. They look a bit sparse (but I love the colors).
