Mauve and Margaret

It is freezing outside but the sun in steaming into my dining room and this little African violet caught my eye while I pegged washing onto the clothes horse. It was a gift from a student a while back is basking in the sun and blooming beautifully once again. This is my only indoor plant and I was worried when Margaret gave it to me as I would be so embarrassed if she were to visit and it was a all brown and dying due to my brown thumbs. Margaret is the lover of all things mauve and she utilises this in her fabulous quilts and creative knits. Those who know her know that she is always dressed in mauve, which suits her so well.
