Visions of Violet
Hello there, everyone!
Isn’t it interesting how nature’s timing can work out in such a way that several very different flowers of very similar hues blossom simultaneously? A carefully orchestrated concert of the finest and most fragile flowers conducted by the flower fairies… a sweet symphony of spring. I couldn’t help but notice such a harmonious stroke of good luck while working in the garden the other day- my very first bright blue anemone, a scattering of deliciously-scented violets, and the friendly faces of iris reticulata. The vivid colors of all three friendly faces definitely made quite a statement in the garden amidst a decidedly drab backdrop of browns and grays.
I couldn’t resist cutting a few of these very violet vixens to celebrate the new life that the flower fairies have granted the garden.
The tiny violets got bundled into one very petite, sweet-smelling posy. A springtime bridal bouquet for a precious little flower fairy, perhaps?
The rest got thrown into a crazy combination of foliage and forsythia. I quite liked how the bold yellow of the forsythia blossoms contrasted with the violet hue of the anemone and brought out the tiny specks of gold in the iris.
I hope you’ll join me as we raise our flower fairy wands and cast a spell of good growth over this years garden. Here’s to a brand new season full of flowers , may your garden flourish and thrive! :)
