Whas' Happenin'?

You've heard of shy violets? Not so with this one! This pink fellow obviously poked his head above ground, took one look around and said, "Hey! Whas' Happenin' with no leaves on the trees?!" His jaw appears to have dropped in utter consternation.

Tch tch tch . . .

Go back to bed little darlin'. Winter isn't quite done yet!

Huh! Our violets haven't even put out leaves yet, let alone flowers!!! And no, this one isn't shy is it? I hope we don't get any freezes between now and spring ...

Violets amaze me. They are so tiny, yet packed with so much personality.
I remember the deep purple violets of my childhood. They had such an intense scent. I haven't come across any like those since then.

Nice story and good for a children' blog. Or a book.

we'll have a long wait before we see our beloved violets here. What a lovely photo,... I'm ready for spring, but it will be another three months here.

Oh, and how do you know this violet is a "he???". LOL! Maybe "he" was looking for "she". LOL!
I hope you don't get any freezes either. Our first flowers are (appropriately named) snowdrops. Then crocuses, daffodils and tulips. Violets wait until it's really warm, like May.

P.S. - good thing mr. abraham lincoln doesn't come and visit my blog. All my flowers hold conversations - usually behind my back. LOL!
