~Little Johnny Jump~Ups, that's my name.
Early in the Spring time up I came.
Don't you like my smiling face.
Singing in a sunny place...
Momma loves these tiny flowers,
Have a happy special day!
~Unknown to me
Hope all of you Mom's had a special
I did! :)
~Johnny Jump~Up can refer to Violets or Pansies
A Johnny Jump~up is also a European wildflower
called Heartsease. Heartsease can also
be used as an herb.
They've also been called
Wild Pansy, Love~in~Idleness, Pink of my John,
~There are about 500 species of Viola's.
Most are Perennials, & Biennials
They come in many colors.
~And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
~How can one help shivering with delight
when one's hot fingers close around the
stem of a little flower, cool from the shade
and stiff with newborn vigor!
~Wishing you all a beautiful week! :D
