Long-stemmed pansies are so sweet gathered in little bunches. I cut these from a flower garden in the summertime, but sometimes we get lucky at the market to have them shipped from California in the winter and early spring. They are a good substitute when I can't get my absolute favorite, cut violets (my obsession!).
What's your favorite flower? Mine changes according to the seasons! Right now the violets, these pansies, and anemones are on my mind.
