122- Viola

When I was growing up my mom always referred to these happy little flowers as violas. I wasn't surprised to find out that she was right or that they are related tot he violet and pansies. I've always loved these little cool weather plants. I love the way it looks as if an artist has taken a brush and painted whiskers on them.

Little purple pansies, touched with yellow-gold . . .
Can't you hear Vivian??
Memories are so precious. Glad there are little re-memberers like pansies every spring just after the snow.
