I grew pansies on my windowsill. I didn't think I had enough sun in that window, and that the cats would have them for lunch, but this year I decided to give it a go.
I consider them birthday gift from my Mother-in-law. (For the record my in-laws are about the best parents on the planet, and not just because of the pansies)
For some reason this one grew utterly huge. It was three feet tall at one point.
They were one of the more magical parts of the summer around here.
I just hope it works as well.
