violets

unsent, early 1900s

Violets are the birth flower for February and symbolizes faithfulness, modesty.
They are also associated with death and resurrection, so are often seen as Easter flowers.
I couldn't not post something for this week's theme, could I?!

  6. Having been born in February, I guess Violets are then my birth flower. Cool. They are so quiet and gentle - not at all like me, but . . . oh well. :))

  7. I was thinking about the wild violets I used to find in the woods in spring when I lived in the north woods.

  8. Yes it is a lovely card - something about the design of it and the balance of the drawing.

  9. We've got wild violets in our mountains here, but the African violets which people have in their homes are also beautiful...and I never can get mine to bloom. Glad that soon there will be some wild ones. Lovely card!

  11. Your card may have the same flowers that are worn by the young woman on my post this weekend! She has a corsage of sorts but since it is a sepia tone photo I didn't recognize them, but the blossom shape is so similar to these that it now adds a violet color I could not see.
