When Violets Are Happy

They glow like silk.

So pretty and cheerful.  I'm happy when my African Violets thrive.  I've had this one for over a year and it's a prolific bloomer.  It sits here on my sideboard with my tea things for company.

Right outside my window there are a few more reminders that Spring is in full affect and "consistently" warm weather is on the way.

When Nelly is happy, she climbs and shows her stripes...

and offers light shade for Fern and Fairy.

When Rhody is happy, she proudly shows her true colours...

and tries to be the center of attention.

When Vi is happy, she makes lace...

and glows at sunset.

I love it when my garden wakes up and presents me with so many pretty blossoms and wonderful scents.  The peonies will be blooming soon...I have my vase ready :-)

Thanks for stopping by...Have a joyful day.

Hello Lady V,
It so nice to come along for a visit. You brought back my memories of a once 'Happy Nelly'that I had for about 6 yrs. She was a showboat too! For some unknown reason she just stop living. We now have started a new one. Your flowers are beautiful and I love this time of the year!
Welcome spring and Happy May Day,

Such lovely blossoms on all of your plants. Spring is my favorite time of year when Mother Nature shows off with beautiful colors.

I can tell that all of your pretty ladies are happy. They are blooming so beautifully. I have a couple of violets in my kitchen window and I haven't been able to get them to bloom again. But then, I haven't fertilized them either. lol! Just hoping that watering would do the trick. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful blooms with Share Your Cup. I am now a new follower.
