And Now for a Word from my Violets . . .

Six of my plants went to the Illinois State African violet show this weekend . . . and they had a good time :-)




This is Gail. It took Best Vintage Violet. It's mine.

This is s. ionantha subspecies orbicularis var. purpurea (it's a species plant, hence the long wacky name). It took Best Species. It's mine.

I had two other plants, both got blues and one was best in its class. And there were other beautiful winners, but I'm pretty sleepy, so I'll post more, later :-)

Thanks so much you guys!! The show was really exciting for me this year. :-) It's been quite a while since I've had a plant win a Best in Show, and never at the state level before :-)

Michelle, I might have to share my ribbons with my cousin, who watered for me while I was away!

And yes, Bethany, I think you met all of these girls :-)
