I love flowers...

I love flowers, may not be too good at keeping them alive, but I love them. So I find it strange that the plants I have the best luck with are African Violets... they are so picky, need lots of water but the leaves and flowers die if you touch them. Along comes the specific pot for them, where you put water in the bottom and an insert in it with the plant... easy peasy! My son, aka Pickle, and I each picked one out last year and they are blooming again now. He says his is "beautiful" and that mine isn't as pretty... I say if it has blooms and is thriving it is all good! It was so nice to look at them with the snow out the window behind them, but now the snow is melted and I can't wait for more flowers... just grown by someone else!

Along those lines here is the cute little flower girl again from the Wonder and Joy set. I played along with a few challenges... it makes it sooo much fun!

My Mom and sister have wonderful success with African violets and you're so right about them being a bit particular in their care. This birthday card is marvelous - the colors themselves are so bright and happy and the image beautiful.
