Sweet Violets - A Walk Around The Neighborhood

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.

They are beautiful. As a matter of fact I think I prefer the white.

I heard a rumor that when it comes to poodles on or off a leash it doesn't matter..... They are BOSS 24/7.

Have a great rest of the week Kris.

How beautiful! I've never seen white violets before. I've enjoyed getting caught up with your blog. Especially all the photos of china. I wish I had more storage, I would buy lots of it. Probably a good thing for my DH that we don't;)
