SWEET VIOLETS

I sure never saw anything blossom
so fast ! ( and still haven't.) This is
last year's crop and such a favorite
of mine to look at and think of my
mother, Mary and her mother, Letitia.
Listen to them:
Letitia: "May-ree, go out side
n' pick a bunch of those sweet violets
for the center of this angel cake for
Aunt Cora. She's coming up from
the island for a visit"
----then in later years,
Mary: "Jill, go out and see
if there's any violets for Nana's
place at the supper table."
and now
Jill: "Kimberly, don't drive
over the violets with the mower !"

I can hear you saying that Jill, I had to laugh. What a nice thought though.
