The Pansie, Or Three-Coloured Violet


Continued high cultivation makes an astonishing change in this pretty little plant. By it the blossoms are greatly enlarged, and the hues become more varied than one can easily conceive. In the engraving we have preserved both the size and color of the original plant, because we love simple nature as she is, better than when forced and distorted by art [i.e. artificially]. It is a much cherished garden flower, and forms elegant borders for alleys and flower-beds.

Sentiment.—Tender and pleasant thoughts.” (p. 90)
