The violets have arrived on my front lawn. They are spectacular this year. The scent is wonderful and I can smell them from very far away. I have a sort of pinkish/purple variety and I can’t even remember the name of the type, but they are well worth looking forward to.

I cut a few and put them in a little vase and brought them in yesterday. One thing I did notice is that when you bring too many in at once, or you get too close to them, their fragrance goes from beautiful violet to overwhelming animalic very quickly! I know that, I just got greedy. So, I am distributing bits of the original bouquet around the house so I don’t get too great a concentration of violet in one place.

It is, for all its pitfalls, one of the loveliest fragrances in the plant kingdom.
