The violets in the lawn are opening their faces to the morning sun here at Little Red House. Happy Saturday!

  1. What a pretty shot. Happy Saturday to you too. Mom has violets in her yard. I should go steal some. I'd love some in my yard...

  2. Good morning Mary! I don't think we're at the violet stage yet, but I'm going to go check. The poor lilacs must be getting very confused with all the late snow. I wonder if they'll bloom in May.

  9. Hi Mary
    I see that also with you desired spring arrived finally, and already the "Veilchen-flower"...
    I had to read after very much, because I return straight of one sun holliday, before I draw into my small red house, into Sweden.
    I have pictures of my journey straight posting... sun, sand and beach, and beautiful flowers...
    Take care

  10. Okay Mary, I've got it all figured out now...you are actually a professional photographer in hiding aren't you? My goodness, your shots are just beautiful!

    Hope you have a wonderful Saturday.

    Hugs,

  13. I've been sitting here sipping my early Sunday morning coffee sweetie, and studying this picture. There's just something about it that I really like in it's simplicity. You just seem to have an eye for things Mary, both in photography and decorating, that I really love. Hope you're having a wonderfully relaxing weekend!

  14. Well, I am a 51 year old homemaker myself. Grown daughters and a grandson. Wife of a doctor. And I don't know what fifty-something you are. (Read your bio) But you look better than I do! I must have been out in the garden far too much. And I hate sunscreen! Glad to have found you.

  15. Beautiful photo...I'm still waiting for the violets in my own lawn to show forth their pretty violet faces...so far it's just the lawnmower-trimmed leaves that I see out there. Your blog is quite enjoyable; I come visiting from time to time.

  22. Violets are one of my favorite flowers! They always come out here around my dear eldest daughters birthday, just days before really, and it is tradition to decorate her birthday cake with them. The extended family has gotten used to this eccentricity and simply pick them off:>) They grew in purple, white and yellow masses in my dear grandmothers farmstead lawn.

  23. What a beautiful little violet. My friend has just finished an embroidery of the Violet Flower Fairy and this violet must be her special home. Warm wishes, Eleanor at Thatchwick
