{Our Pansies in December}

Pansies are such a JOY to grow in the fall and winter season as they are so GIVING! 
Look here at Our Pansies in December:
Husband Pieter took these photos on December 3...
Fresh rain on their friendly 'FACES'
These white Pansies are in our Fiberglass Window Boxes alongside the retainer wall on our driveway.
These boxes are from Flower Framers of Cincinnati
Stepping back a bit further to show them better...
This is looking the other way, towards our fragrant double flowering Magnolia Grandiflora 'Namnetensis Flore Pleno' tree.
Do you have any flowering plants outside?

      Thank you and yes those fiberglass window boxes are the best on the market.
      Pansies are one of the most rewarding flowers!
      You are quite welcome and that's exactly in the Christmas spirit; giving to Charity.
      Hugs e anche un Buon Anno!

  3. They are very lovely in your pretty white flower boxes, Mariette! Like you, I enjoy flowers in all seasons, however few. We have a few tiny pansies blooming and one sweet, white Lenten Rose. I hope your Christmas was full of peace and joy. Hugs xo Karen

      Thank you, such winter blooms do lift us up and make life different.
      We did have a peaceful Christmas with a delicious 5-course dinner at Ristorante da Maria before we went to Mass at 11:00 PM. LOVE the caroling during Christmas time.
      Christmas day we spent lots of time on the phone with The Netherlands and our foster daughter made a video call on December 24th around noon, as they are exactly 12 hours ahead of us.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Thank you, this is such a winter bonus for having blooming pansies!
      Our Christmas was a very quiet one, just the two of us, as usual. We had a delicious Christmas dinner, followed by Mass at 23:00 o'clock.
      Enjoy your weekend; the last one of the year...

  7. Lieve Mariette,
    deine weißen Stiefmütterchen sehen wirklich entzückend aus! Hier würden sie im WInter leider erfrieren bzw. zumindest keine Blüten mehr zeigen. (Im Moment ist es bei uns allerdings auch nicht sooo winterlich kalt, es hat + 6 ° C, aber das ändert sich bestimmt noch.)
    Ganz herzliche rostrosige Grüße, Traude

      Ja, Stiefmütterchen finde ich immer ein komischer Name; wo kommt dass bloss her? Sie sind sehr lieb und man freut sich sogar im Winter auf einige Blüten ums Haus.
      Bei euch ist es wirklich ganz mild noch; geniesst vom milden Wochenende; das letzte im Jahr 2013.
      Lieber Gruss,

  10. I have loads of flowering plants out side. My garden is very pretty, but I have to confess, I am not good at growing pansy's. They sometimes curl up their leaves and die in a day. This doesn't happen to any other plants.

    Replies
    1. Dearest Kay,
      Yeah, you are in mid-summer and that is not quite fair for comparing to winter blooming plants... Too bad that pansies don't feel happy in your garden as they can last almost forever and are so pretty.
      Wishing you a happy last weekend of the year!

      Ja, die Bevölkerungsdichte zum Vergleich mit den Niederlanden ist hier ein auf zwölf in Georgia. Also hat jeder einiges mehr. Für uns hätte das Grundstück am besten kleiner sein, können aber das existierte leider nicht... Solange wir können, wollen wir weiterhin den Garten und den Wald zu wahren.
      Die Stiefmütterchen in weiss harmonieren indertat sehr schön mit dem Haus.
      Auch ein schönes und ruhiges letztes Wochenende vom Jahr.

  12. Lieve Mariette,

    Wat staan je viooltjes er prachtig fris bij.
    Heb dit jaar voor het eerst geen winterviolen in de zinken bloembakken onder het raam,
    omdat ik het zonde vond om het bloeiende zomergoed eruit te gooien zoals lobelia en jasmijn.
    Eigenlijk is het geen gezicht want nu staan mijn 8 houten kerstboompjes tussen het nog steeds bloeiende spul.
    Hou wel m'n hart vast als het echt gaat vriezen want dan is het gedaan.....tja en wat moet ik er dan inzetten.
    Vergeet nooit de dag dat mijn schoonvader overleed op mijn verjaardag en ik op de ochtend van crematie plechtigheid een klein tuiltje blauwe viooltjes kon plukken uit de bloembakken om bij het afscheid op zijn kist te leggen,hij was bij leven ook zó dol op viooltjes,en als ik heel eerlijk ben vond ik het tuiltje meer uitstraling hebben dan de grote toef van witte orchideeën die wij bij bloemist hadden laten maken.

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Kennelijk door de warmte van de muur houden viooltjes e.d. in jullie bloembakken het ook tot 5 januari! Heel bijzonder is het en het geeft ook vreugde. Net als nu bij jullie...
      Zo'n klein tuiltje blauwe viooltjes hadden iets poetisch, iets wat erg geliefd was tijdens je schoonvader's leven... zoiets straalt altijd meer uit!
      Geniet van jullie laatste weekend van het jaar en nog de allerbeste wensen voor een mooi en gezond 2014!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

    Your pansies remind me that winter will end at some point. It's 26 F this morning and not expected to rise above the mid-30's. My blooming plants are inside in my sunroom.....cheering me on towards spring.
    Enjoy your week end........*s*

      Yes, besides this joy of blooming pansies we did have a lovely Christmas with great Italian food. Ristorante da Maria took care of a lovely 5-course Christmas dinner before we headed to Church for the 23:00 o'clock Mass. Singing Silent Night; my most favorite Christmas carol...

  20. Dearest Mariette, Your pansies are so beautiful and healthy. You are correct they are so beautiful during the cold months. I remember the flower boxes and they are great.
    I glanced out back today and one of the yellow knockout roses was blooming.
    We do have strange weather here.

      We did fill our flower boxes with these white pansies after the painting got done. They had to be emptied and filled again and those verbenas were not enough for all. For the time being those pansies are a joy!
      The weather can go up and down quite a lot indeed. Early last week we had summer temperatures and than frost again at night.
      Love to you and Bob,

      Alll year we try to have some blooming plants around us; they give happiness.
      Sure, you are in the midst of summer and I hope you got sunshine now so you can play golf again with your friends. May 2014 be a blessed year for you and may you continue to heal from your brain injury. Christmas time of the year is rather stressful as a lot of things are going on at once. Relax for the remainder of the year and have a happy 2014!

      Thank you dear friend! Yes we had a lovely Christmas, no table setting at home for many family members like at your home but we enjoyed a five course Christmas dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant; Ristorante da Maria. Followed by Mass at 11:00 PM and we love the caroling part of it. That makes Christmas what it is.
      We did call family members on Christmas day and that's how we bridge over 7,000 km and even 20,000 km for our foster-daughter who is in Indonesia; exactly half way around the world. But all are close in our hearts.
      Big hugs to you,
