Butterfly in the Pansies

I purchased a pot of pansies today at Costco.  So lazy...I did not have to pot them up.  Just plopped the container into the urn at the front door.  They smelled so devine.  A cabbage butterfly thought so too.  Happy Easter to you and your family.   More Straight out of the Camera photos can be found here Murrieta365

Lovely pansies. I saw some arrangements outside the grocery store too, but they were too pricy. I need to visit the garden center as they had some just waiting to be purchased and planted up outside my front door.

That's cool! I haven't seen any cabbage butterflies yet this year, though I did see three mourning cloaks in the forest on Thursday. The pansies are pretty!

Gosh, it is amazing how think those can be when their wings are tight together like that. It makes it all the more interesting! Also, I love Pansies. :)

Beautiful photo! I bought a pot of pansies, the smell in the car on the way home was a treat! It was really strong.

I just LOVE this photo!! It should be framed, its so pretty.
You've convinced me to go buy some pansies today. I think if I plant them on the shady side of the house, they may last longer than usual.
