355 Misunderstood

"Pansies" get a bad rap.  When I researching this sweet little flower online for title inspiration, I came across the Urban Dictionary.  Didn't know there was such a thing, but pansies didn't fare well there.  Here is a sampling of the 38 definitions on just the first page, of which only two referred to it as a flower:  "One who lacks courage,"  "One who backs down from a challenge."  "girly and sissy-like."
" One who opts out of Calculus for an easier math class like Statistics."

In reality, pansies are very hardy.  They can withstand the colder temperatures of spring when others wouldn't dare.   I once saw pansies in full bloom with a lot of snow on the ground during early winter. Yep, pansies are misunderstood.
