In the Garden - This Week

This little native violet (Miss Viola Hederacea to you) has enjoyed the rainy weather this summer and seems intent on taking over the garden - and that's fine by me!.

The flowers are a lovely lilac with a touch of white and nod happily in the breeze.

The shape of the flower is perfect for a stencil print and is one of my favourite "happy" prints - it looks like it's always smiling to me.

Especially when it is wrapped around a nice bottle of wine.

But I should have included a leaf or two as well in the design - they are such a lovely rounded ivy shape.
