  1. I enjoy the way names come back around. Here Violet seems to be accompanied by Winifred, Eleanor, Grace and other “old fashioned” names. Beats all those “J” names that were so popular when I was teaching. I had to have Jessica A and Jessica T to keep girls apart.

    1. My wife’s name is Julie She went to school with numerous Julies, and when I met her, two of her best friends were also called Julie. The other best friend was called Julia. It was very confusing. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh, beautiful, Pete. My mother loved African Violets so your post reminds me of her today. Her name wasn’t Violet though like your mother’s. Her name was Odell. I doubt there is any flower named that.
    Today is election day here in the US so in the hope Trump is defeated, my favorite V is for Victory.

  3. Wonderful post, especially the last sentence. Of course that is pretty much the best reason of all time😊
    Sad to see this series is almost at it’s end. I really enjoyed reading it! Maybe you should make a list about the alphabet of things you don’t like as well. Just an idea!😅😅😀😀😀

  4. I used to have quite a collection of African violets once. And I love the colour. Do you remember the Parma Violet sweets in a roll? I hated those. A lovely name though and typical of the time. My mother was Iris another lovely flower name.

    1. I did eat Parma Violets as a child, but I think I was attracted by the overwhelming scent of them.
      They are still for sale now, which I found remarkable. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete. x
