in clover: violas are a girl's best friend


Violas are my favorite spring flower.   I planted these in a vintage English terracotta pot and put them by the aviary that is my chicken run.  I added a 1966 french agriculture award to the vignette.


This pot of violas is by my back door.  I tucked it under a rusty birdcage I bought at an outdoor flea market for $15.  I love finding new ways to use it in my garden every year.


I added violas to my window boxes too.  They are happy to live with rosemary.


This is the gate to my chickens fenced free range pen.  I bought the wooden gate and terracotta wall pocket in the cotswolds.  The violas add a bit of color and charm to the gate.

Did I mention I love spring?

Peace,  Lisa
