Something Green for Spring — Also Purple

Fresh flowers.

From the new spring growth in the yard.

My crocodile was removed, so, I am contributing a vase of violets. My vase is a 7-8 oz. Styrofoam cup and looks pretty as can be. This is under geography since it is from zone 3 inĀ  the gardener’s catalog and violets, jonquils and tulips grow easily here along with roses and berries such as raspberry, gooseberry, huckleberry (sounds like Missippi) or blackberry. I do not have much of a green thumb, so this is a good sign these grow hearty here.
