A posy of violets

Violets in the window

I love the simplicity of a little bouquet of violets in a pretty glass vase. Placing it on a windowsill allows the light to filter through the petals in a most becoming way.


Despite the wonderful sunshine in Arizona, I wouldn't miss the beautiful Midwestern spring for anything. It's my favorite time of year!


  1. So pretty, I love violets!
