I’ve really been enjoying our new house this spring. It seems like new flowers are popping up each week.  I recently discovered that I have some tulips in my yard. I’ve never had tulips before, but they’re absolutely lovely.


And we also have violets all throughout the yard.

violets and spring beauties

Hopefully these won’t be the last of the new floral discoveries.

    My mother transplanted wild violets into our back yard; they will spread all by themselves until you have a carpet of purple in the spring! Shame is, they don’t last, but the good part of that is, they don’t interfere with other flowers.

    You can put violets in salad.

      I don’t eat salad (raw veggies are gross!), but I love candied violets on desserts.
