Violet posy

When I was little my mum used to pick hundreds of violets and make them into little posies. We didn't have much money and she'd make them for me to take to my friends birthday parties, with homemade bread. There I would be in my hand me down clothes, often mortified to be handing the mother of the house a bunch of homemade flowers and bread. 

Today, if someone brought me cut flowers from their garden and homemade bread I would be the happiest gal in town. I'd probably be wearing second hand clothes as well... Funny how things change.
