One of my favorite seasons, I just love to plant pansies! I love their happy little faces greeting me just outside my door. I love their stalwart nature, no fear of the cold, no worries if covered by a late spring snow and always seeding in and popping up between the bricks of a sidewalk. Some of them even weather the heat of summer though that is not when they are at their best but now when we are all hungry for color and their happy faces. When combined with bare branches and pussy willows the arrangements are perfect trumpeters of the spring season.
