My mom's birthday is next weekend, so this card is for her.  Both of us love pansies and as we live in the cool northeast of the US, they can survive all summer and are one of the first plants out in the stores in the spring.  I just saw some at my local grocery store this week.  They made me so happy!  : )  They are just so cute; love their little faces.
