These have become Baby Doll's pansies. A neighbor's daughter sold them to me as part of a team fundraiser, I planted them in a couple pots in the backyard last October and haven't touched them since. Mother Nature watered them through the winter months with more rain than we are used to and MUCH more snow than we are used to. Things have warmed up and dried out now. The flowers needed watering on a regular basis but my mind has been elsewhere. You may recall that I am a cold blooded plant killer. Things were looking pretty bad for my pots of pansies. That's when Baby Doll stepped in. She LOVES being outside and in her ramblings through the back yard she took an interest in the sad, potted pansies. At first I thought her interest would kill them. She is a rather brutal dead header. I humored her when she asked for repeated cups of water knowing she meant it for the flowers. Then about a week ago, I noticed that the pansies were perking up. Tonight both pots were full of flowers. Do you think green genes are recessive? Because although I don't exhibit many indications of having a green thumb, I seem to have passed my green genes on to the next generation.
