Every year when the temps get down to freezing I bring in a piece of my three geraniums, Phyllis, Florence and Blossom and put them in small flower pots so they can winter in the house and have a head start on blooming next spring. This time I also had a nice crop of pansies in small planters that I just couldn't leave out in the cold. I brought in two containers to see how they'd last the winter.
I set the hanging basket in a sunny spot on the floor. The pansies were so colorful I decided to use them as models to learn a little more about how to work with my new watercolor pencils.
Well...I can see a lot of potential and that there's more learning to be done.
Back in the kitchen Thomas was checking out the new flowers too.
He's a finicky eater but he does like to occasionally add a few greens to his diet.
If he could do a guilty nonchalant whistle he would. La-la-la-la-laaaaaaa.
Then he dives head first into the flower pot for some stolen salad.
I decided the pansies could stand a little trimming so I let it go. Then I noticed the other container of flowers was looking a lot worse for wear. Beavis photographed what was happening.
I moved those pansies out of Thomas's favorite sunny spot to a different window.
