That is so beautiful! I brought one back from one tiny leaf after the rest died – and then it froze just at blooming time in a snap freeze!

It is beautiful, Lillian! I used to grow them years ago but killed the last one that was given to me a year or two back. Very nice!

Lovely! Good for you. Hope it continues to thrive for you.

I have always liked violets, in fact I think it is flower for those of us born in February. I have tried, not recently, but never have quite the right window for them but then I don’t have much of a green thumb..

I’m notorious for killing off house plants, but in this case I had to move it from a kitchen windowsill to make room for my Christmas display and happened to put it in exactly the right spot at a window by my sewing machine. Apparently, it’s just right for sun and heat from an air duct plus every time I sit down to sew (which is at least once a day) I remember to water it. It’s flourishing now – I’ll have to see how it does when the air conditioner is on.
Have a nice weekend. Lillian
