Thinking about the Pansy Girls
Ok, I just made that one up. There's no such thing as the Pansy Girls. But I am reminiscing about my grandmother, my mother and myself, triggered by Sally Russick's photo prompt, "Reminisce."
Have you ever been in the middle of a busy day and all of a sudden you run across a certain baked good, candy, flower or an object catches your attention and you are sent right back to your childhood?
Oh yes, yes I have. I live in the house my grandparents bought in 1949, and little reminders are everywhere. Many things have changed as well. But most years, someone has planted pansies, and I always am reminded of my grandmother, whose favorite flower they were.
And of course, they were favorites of my mother, and well, me too! Sad to say my daughter finds them a bit off-putting, with those little funny faces in the middle.
