First Wild Violets

firstvioletsJust the prettiest flowers, almost hiding away, by Coldstream Bridge on the banks of River Tweed, where I also saw a bee, and a forget-me-knot.

    • Thank you, Mary. I am fond of violets, when we lived in the wilds of the country, in Liddesdale on the Scottish Border the violets were the first real sign of Spring, in that often harsh climate – we used to go and look for them on a particular bank. My small son once heard a conversation about “violence” and he ran in looking a tad anguished, saying: “What’s wrong with violets? I like violets!”

  2. As always thanks for sharing the lovely spring scenes. Our first violets are usually a month from now but we’re getting more snow this weekend so who knows!

    • Thank you for your comment, Marianne. We had a wonderful Spring ourselves up until the last gew days, when it has turned blustery and windy. Blew over our bird-table, which has now been anchored in place. Hope the snow avoided you, it’s not what one needs in Spring.
