After some wild weather, including hail in April, my violets are blooming!
A very dear friend gave me the first plant many years ago. They are a variety that has long stems and very large leaves in the summer. Some people actually think they are undesirable plants because they spread. When I was young, we had them around the house, but the plants were much smaller. I ♥ them!!
The week my Basket of Gold is also in bloom.
Over the years this flower garden at my mom's has been a family project. I plant a few more bulbs each fall and do the weeding and some of the cleaning. It's too early for the annuals.
My brother built the retaining wall and waters the yard and garden.
My mom and dad brought back the rocks from trips to the mountains, usually just a day trip because farmers and cattle feeders don't take time off. And when they do, it's because it rained!
