From Morning Thunder's Garden
Pansies at Morning Thunder in Quincy. Pansies are a domesticated violet. They intrigue me because I'm always walking the line between wild and domestic. Pansies are domesticated, but look rather wild. I guess it depends on one's definition of wild. Wild colors? The wild violets around Quincy are mostly yellow. So, why are they called violets? What if the yellow species had been discovered first; would they now be called "yellows?" Anyway, click on any image for a close-up. Better yet, stop by Morning Thunder and enjoy the real thing.
