Viola x wittrockiana ‘Primrose Yellow’
We planted a lot more Pansies than usual this spring. It was probably due to us wanting to push up spring a little after the harsh winter. We used a mix of different shades but these yellow ones stood above the rest as far as flowering. When I went to the nursery to pick up the Pansies there was a whole block of these and they were literally glowing. It made a strange light on the outside of the house. The smell was beautiful too. Driving back to the job I had to open the windows on the Jeep since the odor, while pleasant, was getting a little overwhelming.
Last night I went and saw my friend’s band playing at a local sports bar. I hadn’t seen them in over a year and they were much better. It really sounded good. Tonight we have our monthly gig at Molten Javas Coffee House in the next town over. I am looking forward to jamming out.
Here is the guitarist and singer from last night. Both are really talented. I had the D700 and 60mm/2.8 lens. As soon as I got there I knew I should have brought the 50mm/1.8 because the lighting was so bad. I can’t understand the place had about a million dollars worth of TVs (including one that was about 10 feet wide) but couldn’t afford any stage lighting.
