Best Blossoms

Cute little pansies look fragile but they are in fact hardy enough to withstand any cold snaps.  That is why they’re the quickest blooms to pop ( sometimes as early as February). And that makes them an embellishment you can count on for all your spring flights.  Fill a host of white vases with them to line a buffet of sweets, scatter them across the table, toss edible ones in salads (be sure they are pesticide free), or sugar them for a delectable crunchy adornment for drinks and desserts.

The tiny flowers also lend a nostalgic air; In the mid-19th century, they were imported from Victorian Europe, represented in our art, and painted on our china and other home items.

Best of all: pansies come in many colors–purples, oranges, whites, yellows, and pinks–so they’ll match the decor of any party you throw!
