I love violets, as you may have guessed from my blog title! As a child I was addicted to violet cremes which I could get at the old fashioned newsagents in my home town, and I was delighted to find them at the new chocolate shop which opened here a couple of years back.
However I really adore violet flowers, they are hard to find but heavenly when you do. Imagine my delight the first spring in this house when I was wandering in the garden and spotted not one type of violet but several I don’t know the name of any of them, but we have a large violet plant in the wooded part of our garden.
And these really beautiful white violets, which don’t have much scent but are really pretty.
But the plants pop up everywhere in the grass, in the boarders, in the wooded areas. They make me smile every year and for me really give me a sense that winter is over.
