What’s happening on Mist Mountain? A Walk Around in April, a very unpredictable month.
Violets are like pansies, a little bit of bright intensive color where you least expect it, unobtrusive but startlingly there. They are easy to grow and prolific and out of fashion most of the time. Pansies and primroses seem to be what you find at the market instead.
Another friend was cleaning out her garden beds and splitting things so I was lucky to get my hands on some beautiful violets to start in my own garden. I hope they survive and multiply. Then I can divide them again and put them around the yard in surprising spots for them to keep on surprising me with those lovely purple colors.
One thought on “Violets”
What a wonderful plan for your violets. They are such delightful treasures. I often think about Mark Twain’s words: “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” Of course I make sure to be vigilant NOT to crush them, but you’ll often find my nose pressed into a mound of them.
