FEBRUARY VIOLETS ARE A PROMISE OF SPRING!

About this time every year I bring
 up all my violet china pieces
because it's time
 to think about lovely violets!



I have a February birthday so
I have always loved violets.




I remember as a teenager,
  going out on a cold day in 
Virginia and seeing violets
blooming under the leaves.  I had
a flower bed around an old
tree stump.  My family never spent
much money on plants or seeds for
flowers but rather we dug things
up that we found in the woods.



If you love to decorate for different
seasons you know that putting things
away can be quite a job too so I am glad
 that the New Year and Valentine
 decorations are all packed away.

I love all your beautiful violet dishes Bernideen. I have blue violets growing wild in the woods behind my home. A friend of mine gave me white ones that I planted in my flower bed and they come back year after year. Thanks for sharing. Thelma...

Bonjour Berdideen !
The fine porcelain, the little handkerchief..... I really love these tiny flowers beautifully enhanced in your photos.

I am getting ready to put out my violet things also. I don’t have as many beautiful pieces as you, so I mix them with some pansy dishes. Love that first teapot, all your cup and saucers, cream and sugars, and those two salad plates in your header. On a very snowy day,in a record snowy month, these are hope that spring will be coming along!

My grandmother had a February birthday, and whenever I see violets I think of her.

Your collection is lovely!

Bernideen, just what I needed this morning--a breath of spring! My mother loved violets, and I think of her every time I use her violet teapot. Your collection is so lovely.

Such a pretty new collection for February. Love all the violet. It's time for me to put away Valentine's day décor.

Your violet collection is just beautiful, Bernideen! I hope you had a wonderful birthday.

Your violets are my favorite, but please don't say the 'S' word---as I stare at a mound of iced glazed snow, and bracing for more!

Love the violets! I must go outside and see if my violets are growing. My grandfather's china, which I inherited, is violets and daisies.

The violet china is lovely and it's perfect for this time of the year!

Well, I think you can never have too many violets, so... perfect! Lovely collection. I have violets in the front under a pine, but at the moment they are under snow, so...waiting...

Hi Bernideen,
I am wondering if you can help me. I am unable to post pictures since Google made some changes to blogger. I keep getting the message Upload failed rejected by server. Have you ever had this before? I'm worried my blogging days may be over if I can't resolve this problem. Thanks so much. Karen
