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 pretty good condition. They were pansies of one color—red, blue or yellow—and without the dark spots we usually associate with pansies. 

Single-color 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. As most melodies do, it utilizes repeats—in this case, similar images. (Yes, "similar;" there are no two identical images here.)
