Pansies are the most delightful little blossoms typically known for their "smiling faces". I recall visiting our local farms in NJ as a child where I'd repeatedly presented my mother with clusters of colorful blossoms, begging her to choose my favorites...only to be rejected with the same response every time, "No, they don't have smiling faces in them!" Then when my mother found just the perfect flat of smiling faces, I understood exactly what she meant. ;o)
Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
