It’s just that my cousin sent me a packet of viola seeds and so I became curious about the viola. The seeds have been planted and they are sprouting quite nicely. Meanwhile I decided to visit my favorite flower market where I picked up a few viola plants. The owner saw me coming and he just shook his head. “You just can’t stop yourself, can you?”
I confirmed with him that the flowers are edible and I’ve done a bit of my own research. So, if the winter was a time of the nasturtium, in their pots and on my plate, perhaps the spring will be one featuring the viola decorating this and that to be determined.
But, FYI, the nasturtium continue to grow, including a young pot of Empress of India. The cover of the seed packet suggests that all of the blooms will be dark red. So far all I see is a lot of dark green leaves with no indication of buds let alone blooms. So, I’m back to practicing that patience thing. 😉
