This is what I thought too as I stepped outside this morning where my lawn has been overtaken with little blooming violets. They are so lovely! And smell so good. I cannot mow the lawn and damage them. But I feel it is appropriate for lady Violette to have a lawn of solid violets instead of grass. I am providing a safe sanctuary where they can grow and bloom undisturbed. And Sir Francis Bacon’s lines are one of my favorite quotes, especially at this time of the year!
“That which above all yields the sweetest smell in the air is the violet.” Sir Francis Bacon
