I'm always inspired by pretty pansies 
with their cheerful faces in 
overflowing pots or in my garden.
Whether they are in full bloom
or as buds about to burst as 
they hide amongst the leaves.
They beg to inspire!

Pansies have inspired Arts and Literature 
for many years.
Even William Shakespeare's play
A Midsummer Night's Dream
referred to the juice of a pansy
blossom in Act II, Scene I.

Legend says that all pansies were white and 
it was not until they were pierced by cupid's arrow
that they gained the purple and yellow colors.
