Pansy Petal Embroidery

There are a few flowers that thrive in the coldest temperatures to summer's heat, but none as sweet as the little  Pansy Petal Embroidery  For a flower with such delicate petals and leaves, it is the first bloom in flower beds as the snow is beginning to melt.  I can plant it knowing it will thrive no matter what Mother Nature throws at it.
