Common violet , tiny beauty,hides in semi shades of forest edges. Sweet scent betrays easily overseen plant. Modest in nature this flower entered world art galleries ,literature and music,biggest artists love her since ewer, perhaps for it is plant from everyday life with smell from heaven?
Listening to the music,would you treat yourself with something special? My favorites are violet pastilles from Flavigny. I love their violet flower, and the decorated oval box makes me remember the summer far ago, when I got a tiny box of violet pastilles from my mother.Since then for me this little pastilles bear memories of almost forgotten summers when eating violet candis we tried to imagine what would the coming summers look like…..

I love this post! I remember we used to be able to get that candy here at a few import shops…haven’t seen it in ages, though.
