Signs of Spring ,But winter is returning

I Love violets,All I had ever seen was purple or purple and white. Back in the late 1980's my Dad found these white or cream colored on the creek bank and transplanted some of them. So far this yr. this is the only one to bloom.
This pic. is not clear but these are purple and white.

These are all purple. Our yard is cover in violets, I love strolling through the yard and seeing them.

Here's more flowers starting to bloom also a ground cover. They smell wonderful but don't last long when cut.
The weatherman says winter is returning for a few days, and bringing bad storms:o(
Hope ya'll have a great day!

Your violets are so pretty. As a child, I loved to go pick violets on the ditch banks. Mrs. Stocks, my former neighbor, lived until her middle 90's.. I've seen her picking violets on the ditch banks out in the field. She was a great person. Her mind was bad at the last, but her body was so limber. She would pick up leaves in her yard by hand.. bending over...and keep a count of how many she picked up. I guess that's how she lived so long and was able to do for herself for so long.

Now how in the world did your pictures of violets bring up all those memories?

Hello Lib
Often its the 'little' things that give us a lot of your violets
Hope it doesn't get too wet and windy for you - mind you water is never a problem, unless it comes down too quickly
Take care

Yes, here in Michigan too. . . today was 66 and I spread around some mulch. Now, tonight, it's raining and tomorrow will only be 47 degrees!

Hi Lib , We are turning the same pages (LOL). I love violets too , they're so small , but really brighten your day.
I've never seen a white violet , will be on the lookout as I stroll the creek banks. We do have a few lavender violets , but mostly the deep purple.
I plan to make another batch of violet jelly for Christmas gifts , will add a box of fancy crackers and maybe a bookmark , made with pressed violets to a gift basket.
Have a Great weekend !
