In search of colour - 5


Hardy little pansies in a bright red pot make an attractive point of colour further along Albert Terrace. I always think it's nice that people seem happy to leave pots outside their houses, right on the street.  I would have thought someone might walk off with it - perhaps they're more interested in pinching the lead off the roof!

  2. A pretty and attarctive picture. In French, pansies are called "pensées", which means "thoughts". If your offer some to your beloved , it means you think of him..

  3. Tubs and hanging baskets make a street so much softer and more cheerful.

    Pensées to a loved one is sweet :)

  6. I've never heard of "pinching the lead off the roof". This is a real thing? How interesting.

  7. I have a planter out front of my place and always water in the evening to make it messy and heavy to carry off and it seems to work!

  8. In places like Italy and France, pots seem to be everywhere and no one seems to bother them.

  10. The detail colour in the brickwork and the flowers makes a good contrast.
    Hear they pinch copper wire all the time....

  11. I admit that my pansies bloomed up until Christmas here, I had forgotten about that. They sure are hardy. ~Lili
