The first wild violets I ever saw were in the churchyard at Morton near Gainsborough. I couldn't believe it...little violet flowers peeking up in the grass. I must have been about 12 and I wanted to cry and sing at the sight of them! It's funny how so many of my memories are associated with flowers!

Ah, now Violets will forever remind me of my maternal Grandparents as Grandad came down to Sussex from Norfolk and brought some Violets with him! They were split up over many years, I'm sure every house in their street had some. : o )

Yes, both my Grandads loved their gardens. Perhaps they've passed that on to me! : o ))
