Jumping Up and Down for Johnny Jump-Ups


Violas ~ or as they are also called ~ Johnny Jump Ups.
Such adorable little faces.





They make me HAPPY!



I have a big project I am working on.  
I'll give you a hint ...



it's a potting "bench".  I hope to have it ready to share with you soon
and the funny story of how I came to find it.




It's all part of the gardening obsession I am going through 
right now.



I blame it on the joy of Spring!

Bentley feels the joy too.  The only way I can coax him inside is
with a peanut butter treatie.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. I never knew what those were called. I just thought they were miniature pansies (which is MY favorite flower). Things are looking pretty and Spring-y around your yard. Bentley must be enjoying all the fresh air, flowers and TREATS! Happy Spring Y'all From Houston!
