1884 - D.M. Ferry's Pansies - Collection of the Nine Best

Tis the season...almost...here in Connecticut!  I have some flats out on the porch but the snow is still piled where they are to go.  Perhaps a big pot this year?

I am researching lettuces at the moment but when this colored plate turned up in the D. M. Ferry catalog on the way to an illustration for Early Tennis Ball lettuce I could not resist!
