I remembered how much I love
violets – their intensity – that
wilful way they have of being
neither purple nor blue but
violet. Loveable too that a bunch
of them can also be a posy

when my sister and I were growing up there was a violet flower bed growing just outside the front door

We would pick posies of them for visitors

they are speical to me they bring back childhood memories

and somehow to me the leaves are just as important and remember as well as the flowers themselves

maybe it was because I was a child and close to the whole plant 🙂



  1. I love violets…and purple is my favorite color!

    Happy Wednesday! 🙂
