As I've mentioned before, this is the best time of year to plant your pansies.  They are cool weather annuals, and planting them in the fall gets them established, so that in spring, they will have a head start in your beds, giving you nice, full blooms early.  They over-winter well, and, given a little BLOOD MEAL fertilizer in the spring, will perform beautifully in your spring flower beds.  They come in almost any color you can think of, including orange, red, pink, yellow, white, purple, and blue, with bi tones as well.  I have a "water color" mix--pastel colors of blues, white, yellow, pink and purples for the front and side foundations, and fence lines, and then I have several different purples and yellows for the upper back bed.  These hardy, little, bright bloomers will add instant color to your spring beds, and go well with daffodils, tulips, and other spring bulbs.  I buy mine in flats, getting a better price than buying individual packs.
