"Think of me"

Blooming on my balcony and illuminated by the sun this afternoon: Yellow viola In the language of flowers, a yellow pansy = "think of me" (source: A Handful of Flowers).

Addendum  & correction (April 21st): Yes, a yellow pansy (Viola x wittrockiana) does mean "think of me" but this flower is a yellow violet (Viola), which means "rural happiness."

A bit of a beautiful distraction because I'm supposed to be sowing the rest of my seeds this afternoon. I'm both late and on time with this task -- late according to the West Coast gardener's calendar for indoor seed starting but on time with my own journals from past years. I spent a little too much time in the larger urban garden this month and not enough my own. Blame it on hanami and sakura intoxication.
