Pansies for you


“There’s pansies, that’s for thoughts.”

 (Hamlet)

A German fable tells of how the pansy lost its perfume. Originally pansies would have been very fragrant, growing wild in fields and forests. It was said that people would trample the grass completely in eagerness to pick pansies. Unfortunately, the people’s cows were starving due to the ruined fields, so the pansy prayed to give up her perfume. Her prayer was answered, and without her perfumed scent, the fields grew tall, and the cows grew fat on the fresh green grass. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pansy

 March, final exams, teachers busy. (Is that excuse credible enough?)

These pansies are to tell you – “I am thinking of you, though for the time being I have just these pansies to express my thoughts!”
