An April Flower of Sun and Dew

BLUE VIOLETS

“A blossom of returning light,

An April flower of sun and dew;

The earth and sky, the day and night

Are melted in her depth of blue!”

  1. Is that a Bluet? We have tons of them down here in forests and as a pestilence for grass mavens, lol. Love the look, Nancy.

    Actually, they’re wild violets, Steve. :)

  2. I love blue violets, and last year my yard was full of them. This year, I have mostly white ones blooming. What grows in the grass is so much prettier than the grass, isn’t it?

  3. I think that violets are the first bouquet of childhood…after the dandelion. I can just see my little girl’s chubby fist holding a bouquet of violets for me.
