Poem by Sauriol

Here’s a sweet diary entry from 1938 for today by Canadian Naturalist Charles Joseph Sauriol (“Sar-ee-all”) shared by the Toronto Archiveson their fabulous twitter feed - which is a wonderful thing to follow: 

"I find it hard to come in from the flower borders. My Pansies are a garden of enchantment in themselves. People who love Pansies should grow them from seed. I took the advice and I have never had such a profusion of bloom and of so many colors."
