Violet update: part 3

The 'Hawaii' violet just keeps blooming and blooming. The first photos I posted of 'Hawaii' only had a couple of blooms.

My violet at work, which I mentioned earlier, took a month break from blooming but has re-started to bloom again. Let's hope the very-ailing 'red violet' I brought to my work's magic window will survive.

Show off. :-) I have one of that variety that just came into bloom - and was happy that it had 3 flowers open at once.

Well, the almost-dead 'red violet' one sort of balances it out, right?

Amy said...

Not if I admit that I've thrown out almost all of my red-violet ones in the past few weeks. They just seem to be shriveling away. Did split/transplant a few more tonight - and realized that I must have almost a dozen of Aileen's Double if they all survive.

Ok, now I feel a bit better. My red violet is shriveling away too. I took it out of the pink pot you had it in to see if a little more air/circulation will help. Only time will tell, I guess

Considering that one started out as a 25-cent clearance special from Wal-mart, I'm trying to tell myself to not be too concerned.

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
