In the garden right now, sweet violets are in bloom!

 Shy, shrinking & showy…much has been written about this

delicate and fragrant flower.

{See Shakespeare – Twelfth Night!}

Each year, I look forward to the little purple clusters popping up here & there and the

sweet scent of violet wafting through our garden. The beautiful blooms don’t last

long, once cut but for me…a little Violet  bouquet goes a long way 

especially in my favorite antique filigree vial.

It’s one of those perennial garden delights.

Have a sweet Monday and almost forgot…

happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Making an Irish  beef stew tonight :)
