Chedwick decided to groom, feed and water his small collection of African violets today.

Removing the dead leaves and spent blossoms. His violets are always healthy and seem to bloom nonstop.

Ched's brilliant idea: outside the window the Forsythia was glowing, making an excellent background for the violets. Manipulate the photo so it looks like a painting, sort of.

Best Violet perfumes? For sheer sweetness, I'd have to say Insolence de Guerlain, but there are many out there, the violet being a favorite flower.
