EEK! The prettiest one so far--I love violets!!! :)

Mom Wald

Here in southern WI I have a collection of violets in several different shades and combinations. I took several years of scrounging sprouts where I found them, but now our yard has waves of white and violet in the spring.

The foliage makes a nice flower bed border, and lawnmower wheels fit under the leaves. No trimming!

I love violets! Thank you for the pattern.

I think the Missouri flower is the dogwood by the way...

I stand corrected.. it is the Hawthorne and I see it is already on the list...

I can almost smell it, it looks so real! Beautiful work, and nice commentary.

Violets are prone to being thought of as a weed, as they spring up all over the place and are difficult to control. However, in my opinion, violets are beautiful fragrant flowers. I am so glad you used it as your inspiration.


Yay! NJ made it :) Beautiful job Vicki...you know NJ IS the 'Garden State"...but my friend said that's because of all the garden apartments! lol

Thanks for taking the time to share this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. This blog makes me realize the energy of words and pictures. I look forward to more.


I just found this project and can't wait to start on these blocks! I did notice that my state of North Carolina with it's dogwood isn't on the state list yet. Thank you for sharing this.

REPLY: North Carolina has been added as #43 on the list--thanks for posting!


Very, very sweet! What a nice idea to give each state a flower. And the irises in your garden are soooo beautiful.
