A Solid Black Pansy ~ Who knew there was such a thing, I sure didn't know! We went to Home Depot in search of mums and pansies yesterday. The year before last, I had them planted out front and they looked so pretty and grew really well. I knew I wanted to try them again this year. Soo, I bought all kinds of colors including red, purple, blue, white, yellow...and right when we were getting ready to check out, the guy at the register showed us 2 pots of solid black pansies he had on top of a shelf. I was surprised because I didn't even know they came in this color! I couldn't resist them because they looked so unusual and were such a deep velvety color. I thought these pictures would be perfect for fall so I'm sharing them with youall. I've been really slow making art this week. I did start on another pressed blue wildflower aceo/atc with a pastel purple background and I hope to finish it and make some more. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

These are gorgeous! I especially like them next to each other. Very Halloweenish. This was a great weekend here for working outside.

Those black pansies are really dark. Those orange mums must really set them off.

Thanks Jeannette, I hope they will survive my planting them. I only had 5-6 of the blacks ones though. I've planted about 80 pansies the last 2days, whew it didn't look like that many in the little flats!
Hi Katie, thanks so much, whew I have been outside the last 2 days planting flowers.
Thanks Janet, I planted the 2 mums today, they did look good with the black pansies next to them.
