I have never had a green thumb. Two years ago, when my Grandmother died, she had a couple of violets in her carport/patio area. My mother, who can grow anything, told me to take them because she had never been able to keep violets. I just knew I was going to kill them. However, they have just been unbelievable. I started with three and now I have 7. These two were blooming yesterday when I watered them, so I took a couple of pictures.
I always think of my Grandmother when I look at them. Even though, we were close, I miss her.
