Summer Activity: Beauty Tastes Good (Violas)

Cheerful faces, like a Kindergarten class, greet you in the morning.

For such a delicate looking flower, violas are very resilient. This hanging container has been in my garden since last Fall, blooming through the snow, and freezing temperatures (granted, the flowers were semi-sheltered.) Now, in the summer with over 100 F temps., they still flourish. Keep them watered, they love life!

And violas, as well as many other flowers, are edible! These flowers have a faint radishy taste.

I sprinkled Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing over this salad. We liked it quite well, and, of course, it is beautiful.

Also, Viola is the name of  Shakespeare's heroine from  Twelfth Night.
