cure for seasonal affect disorder--pansies

I think you're supposed to take Vitamin D to counteract the effects of long, low-light winter days, but here's a floral remedy: pansies. How could anyone look into the face of this pansy and not feel cheered?

Better yet, take two doses of  pansies!

If two doses of pansies don't cure you, take three. 

Truth be told, the pansies growing in my winter garden don't look this good. I needed pansies for a photo a friend is taking tomorrow, and I picked these at Ashwood Nursery this afternoon. They had several plants growing under cover and were happy to let me pick a few flowers. "The more you pick 'em, the more they bloom," as my mother used to say.
