As you can tell I like Violets around here. One of my favorite spring flowers, so sweet and dainty. The little ones helped me pick some Violet flowers from a grassy, sunny spot in our yard. I have been waiting and checking everyday for weeks now. We did not get very many, but we filled a 1/2 pint jar with as much as we had and poured local honey on top. I am hoping to find more throughout the next few weeks to add to our jar, which will be sitting in the sun. The sun will warm the honey and allow the medicinal properties of the flowers to steep out, plus they have a wonderful sweetness. It will make a delicious honey to add to teas, toast and even by the spoonful. Beautiful and we will enjoy every drop!
