First Violet of Season!!

Today, after watching the heart shaped violet leaves begin to grow, I finally spotted my first backyard violet of the season.  Here, in Glenford, the wild violets have spread and I anticipate many beautiful flowers this season.  In addition, I have ordered some cultivated violets from a nursery and will plant them in speckled shade in May, when they arrive.

Enjoy these two pictures and mark your calendars for a showing of Sweet Violets on May 18th at the Mountaintop Historical Society in Haines Falls and on May 20th at Upstate Films in Woodstock.
