The nurseries are stocking their pansies for fall planting.  I highly recommend planting these hardy, little color spots in the fall rather than the spring. They over-winter well, and when spring arrives you will have a head start on the season. They will be fuller and hardier, and you will have instant color come early spring.  They are best in spots that have some shade during the spring and you will also be able to extend their beauty if some shade is given, especially during the hottest part of the day.  I buy flats--I get a better deal. The colors are amazing--so many different varieties to choose from it is mind-boggling! Dig a shallow hole, pop the plant out of its pot, and plant in, watering well and firming the soil around it. Keep moist, but not wet.  Then sit back and wait for your beautiful blooms next spring!
