AFRICAN VIOLETS








I always take a lot of photos from our African Violets. I really can't help myself. They are all so pretty and gentle. And always in bloom. I think it's because my mom talks to them everyday.

These are stunning. I'm with Spiralstyle, they are very much appreciated here, where it's lifeless for a few more weeks. Just beautiful!

I've always loved african violets, haven't had them in the house for years...maybe it's time to pick up a pot to grace a sunny window in our house. Thanks for reminding me how much I do enjoy them. In the summer our yard is covered with white violets (which doesn't make sense, I know)...but that's what they are, with a faint hint of purple.

African violets are my favourite windowsill flower, the photos are lovely. Now I must get some for my house. Thank you for the inspiration and for visiting my blog.

My mom has the same ones on our kitchen sink window sill - one pot of pink and one pot of purple. They're so gentle and pretty.

Violets are the sweetest flower by nature I think. And I love your lamp. And you =)
