Good morning all, the violets should be showing their pretty little faces soon, I love these as they remind me of pansys.
We have a field not too far from the house that is filled with little violets when we have enough spring rains. Violets are also an edible flower. Pretty on salads, or top of the frosting on little cupcakes too.
Here is a link to a couple of salads with violets
I found this beautiful violet syrup here
Candied violet cupcakes here
I found the above two links here--gorgeous two pages of photos with links to recipes for violets
and one more to share here violets dipped in honey then made into candies
Perhaps just one more
Spring is just around the corner and so are the lovely violets
