This morning I potted this small sampling of "johnny jump ups" from my pansy garden. I love the blues and purples and bright oranges. I decided to do a little research on the pansy. I found that it is the flower of Osaka, Japan. On this Sunday, let us remember those who are suffering and will continue to weather so many challenges in Japan and other areas touched by the earthquake and tsunami. I look at my small pot of pansies a bit differently now, just as I'm sure all of the world thinks a bit more solemnly about nature's power since last weekend.
