Sunday Photos: Pretty Pansies

Pretty Pansy
Pansies are my favourite fancy flowers, as I find them cute and prettier. My first encounter with pansies was at Kodaikanal, during my 2006 visit to the princess of hills. I saw these flowered bloomed at Bryant Park there and I still remember that they were colored in purple and white.

First time seeing them we don’t know the name of the flowers, even seeing the flowers more than couple of time in Ooty Botanical Garden and cottages we stayed in Kodaikanal, I was null about the flower until doing some research on net. People who referred to these flowers then conveyed it to me as monkey flowers, because of the aspect of the flower that resembles the face of monkey.

Viola Tricolor
The couple of macro shots, here, are capture during two different times of visits to Kodaikanal and the Viola Tricolor (a kind of pansy, in the photo above) was captured from a roadside fence around the Kodaikanal Lake. The flowers usually found in partially shade seems to bloom from April to September and it can be in colors of purple, blue, yellow, white...

Neat Pansies, Jeevan I love them too --and as you know, we have a lot of them in our yard also... They look like little ANGELS in the garden. Love all of the colors.. Great pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

Different colors always add to the sparkle of flowers. These are especially beautiful. I didn't know the name of these flowers earlier, thanks for letting us know.
