I'm always humbled by the fact that my pictures are good enough to be published in our paper, The Vicksburg Post. I had sent this particular one in a month ago and forgot about it and opened the paper yesterday morning and saw it. The caption under the pictures said - Marian Love Phillips snapped this close photo of a pansy as it bloomed openly in the waning days of cool weather in Vicksburg.
On Facebook I belong to a group called, The Southern Artist Group and Glenn Fought, a "self taught" artist and photographer, asked us to go within 200 ft of our home and take a picture. This was in my next door neighbor's flower box that hangs on their white picket fence. I received some good feedback on it and decided to enter it in our paper.
