Violets

My mom raised violets in our kitchen window. I remember white, pink and purple blossoms straining to reach the sun. Mom pampered those plants. She told me they were "temperamental" and couldn't stand extremes. She carefully measured how much water they received and moved them from spot to spot in the window to make sure they received the perfect amount of sun. I decided then that I did not have enough patience for such nonsense. Sad isn't it? When I saw this stamp it reminded me of those childhood days. True to my word I never raised violets. They took too much trouble. But the question is... what beauty and wonder did I miss? Blessings to you as you discover the beauty around you...
