The snow is gone from our yard and what to my wondering eyes did appear but GREEN VIOLETS, & some of them are even blooming!! My southern friends probably don't realize what a miracle this is after the longest winter in memory. The usual scenario is that in the fall, the violets last until a hard frost. Then they dry up, turn brown, and re-seed themselves in the rocks where they've been thriving all summer; last fall however, it snowed before they had a chance to freeze & dry - you may remember my posts about the violets in November. Am I preoccupied with violets? Most assuredly! Anyway, somehow, they lived through this winter and are already giving me hopes that SPRING has really arrived!
