African violets. I love them. I remember my mother always having several sitting on the ledge of the dining room double windows facing east. I have had a few, off and on over the years. I didn't have very good luck with them in some of the houses we lived in and once they died I didn't replace them. Now I have two of them, both different colors and not the most common violet color - the one from which we get the color called violet. The one above is the largest one I have grown so far so maybe my thumb has gotten slightly greener.
This is the smaller one and a lighter pink. I really need to find a larger pot for this one. I keep forgetting to check in the supply I have in the garage. I would like to have at least one of every color but I don't have room for any more right now.
