Are any of you African violet lovers? I grew up around grandparents who rooted these like crazy, and for a while I had the magic touch myself. In recent years, however, I couldn't even keep a single African violet alive, much less root one. After coming across some fresh new plants at a couple of nurseries last week, I decided to give them a try again.
This one is a miniature African violet and now resides in an orphaned Limoges teacup.
The bright mauve pink is such a happy color to have around!
This green teacup planter came from JoAnn a few years back, and it's now home to a regular-sized African violet.
The pretty ruffled petals make me think of fancy ladies in chiffon gowns.
And I could really use one more teacup planter, but for the time being this plant is in a very large teacup and saucer.
The pink and white variegated leaves seem like a good fit with ...
... the flowers on the teacup. (Can you tell I'm eager for Spring to officially arrive this week?)
