The unseasonably cold spring has not been kind to pansies. I did find some growing in a planter outside Waltham Public Library that were in fairly good condition. They were pansies of one color—red, blue or yellow—and without the dark spots we usually associate with pansies. 

Such monochrome pansies are all the rage now. I see masses of them, all one color, planted in shopping centers and office parks. In this small planter, however, the colors were mixed. Backlit by a low, late afternoon sun, they presented an irresistible photo op. 

I offer the following series as a visual melody. Like most melodies, it has recurring refrains, in the form of similar images. (Yes, "similar;" there are no two identical images here.)
