Loads of violets in the yard...

…with which we will soon be making violet tea (thanks Eliza for the tip) and having a proper garden tea party! Baby can’t wait. But first, these are definitely violets, right?

    MAN I am late here! I just found a lovely violet syrup recipe on Punk Domestics website that would be fantastic for excess violet flowers (if you get enough of them) a gorgeous purple and apparently it tastes just like they smell. Violets are my favourite flower :)

    Lovely pictures. Enjoyed every one of them. And, it WAS a glorious Easter. “A foretaste of the things to come”. :)

    Definitely violets! Very cool frog you have in the garden – do you know what kind it is? I tried to look it up – my best guess was northern cricket frog. Inquiring minds need to know! Your redbuds are SO beautiful!

      Thanks just wanted to be doubly sure about the violets! The redbuds around here are awesome! I believe they are edible as well. No idea what kind of frog…we have loads of frogs and toads in the garden! Ill try and ID them this year :)
