February Flower of the Month–Violets

Violets

Good Morning, Quilters!

First a note about my recent blogging difficulties…all of the issues were caused by changes made at Bluehost…beyond my control.  For the past several mornings, I have been on the phone technical support…and we all know how that goes….

First you are on hold…then the stressful scramble to come up with the right password…then wait some more, then it’s fixed…only to find it “down” again the next morning.

I’d rather be quilting!

Hopefully, this is all behind us!  Thank you for being patient!

MARY NOHL SCULPTURE

Several of you commented on the Silent Sunday photo yesterday.  I wrote a two part post about the amazing and mysterious Milwaukee artist,  Mary Nohl  HERE. and HERE. She was known as the Witch of Fox Point and we loved going to her house!  Rumor had it that Mary killed her husband and buried him under the sculptures–but the truth –she did a VERY NICE thing for the residents of Wisconsin!

(I grew up in Illinois and lived in Wisconsin for 15 years–so I claim Violets as one of MY flowers…)

The Violet represents love, humility, modesty and faithfulness.  This pretty woodland flower blooms in the shade surrounded by heart-shaped leaves.
