MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{Violets from our Garden and on French Country Style Wooden Tableau}

It was such a lovely sunny day and the violets in our wood garden were blooming at its best. So I did snip off several to create some lovely images for you all to share. Not quite the symbol for St. Patrick's day but nevertheless worthwhile to show.


On the balcony, on top of my hand crocheted table cloth for you to enjoy... The French Country Style wooden tableau with violets is for sale at Spectrenoir ←(click it). Pensez a moi means Think of me...


I've penned a handwritten note to Celeste for Celestina Marie Desings ←(click it) who has been in the hospital with symptoms that looked very much like a heart attack but the diagnostic was she's cleared now for 95%. Let's pray that it stays that way and that she continues to enjoy good health. Celeste is such an extraordinary artist. See my previous blog about her here ←click it. 
The 925/000 silver Card/Letter/Napkin Holder with 2 Angels ←(click it) is from Giovanni Raspini, Italy. Just click here: Spectrenoir for buying info.


The Royal Albert Provincial Flowers, Purple Violet ←(click it) you can find in a previous blog with more info about them; click on the red hyperlink. Also the edible candied violets that are shown inside the glas jar, you find the recipe at the bottom of my previous blog about Edible Flower ←click it. You also can find in my previous blog those Romantic Boxes with Pansies ←click it.

  9. Jeetje, ik demk dat Nicole viooltjes bedoelt !! :-))Geen hortensia te zien!!
    Maar dat even terzijde.
    I absolutely adore pansies as they are so sweet and unpretentious and have such a lovely scent.Here in the UK they also make chocolates with a violet cream in it- I had never come across it before, and it's really special.
    Enjoy your adorable violets.I love the colours and have found the dark coloured have the strongest scent.I remember walking past a huge bed of dark purple pansies in Hampton Court and the scent just blew you away.
    Thank you for your lovely post!

  10. Hallo Mariette,
    das hast du ja wieder zauberhaft arrangiert. Du hast so viele herrliche Sachen mit Veilchen-Design, das passt alles toll zusammen. Ich habe auch ein kleines Töpfchen Veilchen vom Gärtner gekauft, die ganze Veranda duftet danach.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  14. Wat een mooie vrolijke blog. Hier komen de viooltjes op sommige plekjes vanzelf! Echt geen plek waar ik ze zou inplanten.
    Maar nu ik weet dat jij een tuindersdochter bent, weet ik waarom jullie zo'n prachtige tuin hebben. Ik help zelf ook wel eens mee in de kas, 2 april gaan we de komkommerplantjes planten. De kas is overigens van de burgemeester en zijn vrouw (Jan en Karin). Hele aardige mensen die bij ons in de straat wonen. Dus daar gaan wij te voet of op de fiets heen.

    Groetjes Sandyb
