    There’s a wonderful song in “The Mikado” that has the line “Oh, pray make no mistake, we are not shy/ we’re very wide awake, the moon and I” and pansies make me think of it. The way they wear color seems inconsistent with those sweetly shy faces. These are gorgeous, and I’m sure they know it!

      They are intense – what I think of as jewel-like colours, though I wouldn’t want to put a name to the jewel. These were growing in Chihuly’s Garden and Glass in Seattle. There were so many interesting selections there.

        What a garden! I am unlikely to ever go to Seattle, but if I do you can be sure I will visit Chihuly’s Garden.

      It had been a long day and I was almost photographed out when I saw them, but I had to make time for these little beauties!
