Sweet Violets

As the flowers burst open in the garden I've picked some little sweet violets to enjoy.

Their wonderful scent perfuming the air ...

Symbolizing the renewal of spring and the flower of Greece.

The 'Flower of Modesty' as it hides its pretty purple flowers in the heart shaped leaves.

A dainty cherub planter holds more delicate violets surrounded by 'Pink Delight' meadow sage.

I hope you have been enjoying the beauty of spring.  There is so much to share with you as I make some changes in the gardens. 

Today I am joining ...

Tuesday Garden Party @ An Oregon Cottage
Outdoor Wednesday @ A Southern Daydreamer
Home and Garden Thursday @ A Delightsome Life
