This week’s flower in my vase is a hardy pansy.  I bought it as a plant for my hanging baskets last autumn and it has faithfully flowered ever since.  I think it is Viola x wittrocciana and you can buy seeds here.  Pansy faces are such cheerful little things and I particularly love the ink-like blotches on this one.  The background is a dark purple mulberry silk paper which I will be stitching into a lampshade again very soon.

Pansy

Happy Monday.
