Sweet Violets

In Michigan any break from winter weather is cause for shifting to spring jackets, washing the car, and general celebrating. My African Violet wanted to be the first flowers to burst into bloom and did so with great gusto.

I won this little beauty at my niece’s bridal shower 5 years ago. It was a lovely affair where a normally beautiful living room was transformed into an enchanting event for ladies to chat and laugh and tease the bride-to-be, with wonderful food and presents and these flowers on each table. The flowers became door prizes and I won one!

I didn’t think it would live 3 months. Never thought it would bloom again. When it finally did bloom again I had a feeling. I wondered if my niece, now married for a while, was pregnant. Yes she was! Wow. Those are some violets.
