VIOLA, cornuta, Black Devil.  I can't believe I made my first trip to the nursery on June 1st.  I went for herbs -- some basil and parsley for one of the pergola planters.  I didn't mean to buy these, but... HELLO.  They're PANSIES and they're BLACK!

Mom:  Don't you want something brighter?

Me:  No.

We've had a marvelous weekend -- today was almost practically perfect in every way.  There's been a little change-up and I will have tomorrow off, too.  I haven't seen a forecast, so I can only hope.  And I am.  Hoping.

Wow, I love those!! I absolutely have to visit the garden center. How cool are black flowers? And you know, I bet I could even get your mom to like them if you planted them with bright pink or violet or even yellow flowers. I prefer just the black, to be honest, but you could soften it if you really wanted to.

I hope you have a great day!

We also had perfect weather. Black pansies are my very favorite. I sometimes mix them with orange or white, but often like them alone.

I think they are very sexy looking!! Good luck with today's weather. We're pretty - well, yucky!

Those pansies are stunning. I may have to try my hand at some large planters...I must have some!

We are having great weather right now, but I'd love to add those gorgeous black pansies to the mix. Love the photos.

Those pansies are just so velvety and beautiful! :)

Those are HOT!

Sexy pansies!

Gorgeous flowers! I would have snapped them up, too.
