Colorful Spring scene and pansy parents

I thought I needed a picture of the sun setting on these Spring flowers.
Part of that scene are these two pansies that I decided would be the pollen parents for my Viola arvensis crosses. Pods are forming, so look for F1 pictures next Spring. If they're anything like they've been in the past, the F1 will be the size of Johnny Jump Ups (Viola tricolor) and the color should be plain yellow (for the F1 from the orange), and pale purple (for the F1 from the red).
