Photo a Day 101 - Violets are Blue

My violets are just beginning to flower. Since childhood they have been my favourite flowers. I can remember we used to be able to buy posies of violets from the green grocers for less than a shilling and we loved to give them to Mum as a surprise.

I had a littlr garden as a child and it was always full of violets and primroses and smelled so gorgeous in the mornings and evenings.  Now I have violets and primroses growing in my garden. The primroses are holding their own, but the violets are growing wild under all the shrubs. They remind me of my childhood.
