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?
