We celebrate Mother's Day here in Sweden today and what could be better for this occation than violets.
This delightful little gem is called 'Bowles Black' isn't just wonderful. Heavenly dark blue like a night sky and almost velvetly smooth petals. I bet they will looks stunning as a cake decoration or floating in one cool summer drink. Last year I scattered out some seeds and violá...here they are in my potager.
By the way...Who is Bowles?
