I just wanted to let you know that I'm not falling for pansies this year. I have a mole problem, a groundhog problem, and a too-many-plants-in-pots- on-my-driveway problem. I'm not falling for those sweet little blooms that symbolize friendship and remind me of Alice in Wonderland. We are only three days away from our inevitable first frost and everyone knows that frost and flowers don't mix. No, I'm not falling for those graceful bobbing heads of aubergine, carmine and gold that can make even the grumpiest grump smile. Nope. Not this year. Not even on when they hit the clearance rack.
