In my opinion, there is no better flower than the pansy. The rich vibrant colors make me happy. Each year, we plant pansies along a slate path from the back of our house to our driveway. On Mother's Day, we go to a couple of garden stores, is search of the selection of colors I want (everything!). It's interesting that what they offer changes from year to year. Last year, I couldn't find much red; this year there was a lot of red, but no peach or black to be found. Anyhow, here's a little selection from what we bought.
