When I was a little girl growing up in Virginia, we always had some wild violets blooming in February. I would go out to my little round flowerbed and lift the leaves up and there underneath I would see the first signs that spring was coming.......violets.
Who doesn't love violets? Of course, we don't have violets out there under that Colorado snow right now. In fact, they bloom quite late here as we have the most snow in March and April and I have seen it in May and people have said over the years it has snowed in June.
There seem to be so many violet motifs on cups and saucers and teapots and linens:

Perhaps it is their contrast against the snow that makes them so lovely:
I imagine you have some memories of violets to share!
Please sit here by the window and reminiscence.
Below right, I have a chocolate pot I have shared
before with some violets on it.
I hope you have a lovely week! I shall be sharing my post at other blog parties:
