African Violets for Clara


Clara's best friend breeds African violets and gave her this plant before it ever flowered. So gorgeously velvet now.

My grandmother always had African violets. Funny how just seeing that picture instantly took me back to her warm farmhouse kitchen.

I had to give my african violet to a friend so it would keep growing. I always kill house plants. Read my blog.

An unusual color for them, in my experience.

Will forever remind me of my great-grandmother...they were always in her house. When she was in her 90's (and then beyond!) we bought her a pot of artificial African Violets...she couldn't tell the difference by that point, but loved to the touch the leaves--eternally fuzzy! :)
