Pretty little violas, you just have to love them!

They’re like beautiful little faces looking up at you.

They take us through the autumn and winter brightening up the garden, they’re there to bring life to our springtime borders and pots and they keep going right on to summer.

Dependable and gorgeous!!!







They’re very inspiring too, meet my first springtime girl…….Viola, of course!


The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the garden is coming to life…it’s spring!!

Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments.

Happy weekend! 🙂

Oh my Goodness Vivienne, I love the Violas and as I was scrolling down I knew I would see a sweet little girl!! I was not disappointed : ) So pretty and the fabric is perfect. What I’m interested in knowing is, “Did you paint the next photo?! IF so it’s amazing. Love it, have a great weekend, xoRobin

Hi V, very pretty flowers. Oh I say, I love the shade of wool Viola is made in and the cardie, but then purples are my favourite colours, she’s a breath of Spring air! Have a lovely weekend, looks like a potential scorcher for this time of year if the weather people are to be believed!!! 🙂 x

I love violas too, and my autumn hanging baskets planted with the little beauties are still going strong.
Lovely flower photos, and I kind of guessed where it was all leading……and you did not disappoint! Such a sweet little bunny girl and most beautifully dressed!
Have a great weekend!

Violas as so reliable aren’t they Vivienne and Pansies too…could there be a little Pansy to join Viola the bunny. She is such a sweetie, gorgeous colours in her. Have a sunny weekend my dear it’s been so mild here today xx

I adore Violas and Pansies and that gorgeous little bunny is stunning.

Dear Vivienne,

Without a doubt Viola is my absolute favourite! I love her muted, gente, springlike colours so much and that litte pansy button is the cherry on the cake. Fabulous little bunny.

Happy weekend to you dear friend.

Hi Vivienne, What a variety of violas. So pretty. A wonderful Viola bunny. She looks ready for spring. It was finally a bit warmer here today.
It’s been a grand Friday. Hoping you have a fun weekend with family and friends.
See you in blogland…..

Those pretty little flowers are very close to my heart! She is a treasure, the button on her cardi is so cute, and it perfectly picks up the pattern in her darling dress. Another favourite is born! Chrissie x

Gorgeous violas, one of my favourite flowers along with wild violets, lavender and roses (and daisies) 🙂 Your bunny is so sweet…..just love her little cardi and its pretty button. The dress fabric reminds me of a wrapping paper design I did many moons ago………….love that pretty watercolour effect.
Happy weekend, Vivienne!

Violas are so pretty Vivienne and I think sometimes we take for granted how dependable they are….Little Viola is just beautiful…(I love her little button too….your little button elf has been extra busy! 🙂 )
