As you can tell by my blog title, violets are my favorite flower. I seldom find white violets, though. While I was walking Beau around the neighborhood today I found a lovely nest of them next to someone's mailbox. I picked only a few since Beau was impatient to get going and when you have an impatient poodle on the end of the leash, he's the boss.
The blossoms even have a sweet scent. You have to have a good smeller though, since the scent of violets is so faint and delicate.
I am a proud Grammy, a mother, a sister, a wife and a friend. I am slowly drifting towards retirement and enjoy the small, quiet things in life. I read a lot, love antiqueing and thrifting, old black and white movies and studying my family history. I am never bored with my own company. As the old song says, "I Love Paris." It was always my dream to go there and I was able to travel there with my only daughter to celebrate our birthdays a few years ago. I may never get there again, but I will never forget it.
