Garden Bloggers Muse Day – 1 April 2011


O wind, where have you been,
That you blow so sweet?
Among the violets
Which blossom at your feet.

The honeysuckle waits
For Summer and for heat
But violets in the chilly Spring
Make the turf so sweet.

Christina (Georgina) Rossetti

Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day is hosted by Carolyn Choi at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.

    1. Thank you. They are growing in the most strangest place. I found them in some old pots down the side of my shed. Was so excited to see them.
