VIOLETS: THE FRAGRANCE OF MAY

FOTD – March 29 – Sweet Violet

My mother loved the smell of violets, but I never saw a violet until we moved here. They grow wild here and most people consider them weeds. I love them. In May the entire backyard is covered with a combination of violets and dandelions — another weed I just love.

There are folks who uproot the violets because they ruin the lawn. I think lawns are overrated
