Alaska grows the prettiest of them all!!

These viola's were in a planter box on my mother-in-law's deck in Alaska. I think Alaska grows the most lovely viola's and pansies....the biggest too! It must be the cool summers and round the clock daylight!! My grandmother used to grow pansies. I remember picking them from her garden by the bunch and bringing them inside to be put in a little vase for the table. Oh, the lovely memories viola's and pansies bring to mind!! Whatever you call them, they're natures gift.
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Hi Aleta, Love the flowers.. I think flowers are just one of the many beautiful things on this earth! When they say "Stop to smell the roses" we definitely should! Hugs, Folkie Linda
