The 12 days of Violets

I think I have enough now, mucho thanks to my awesome Candy Cane this year, to do the 12 days of Violets, which I’ll start on Christmas Day.

For those of you not a fan of the lovely, shy violet, just turn your heads and diss them quietly over there… in the corner, and you should be ashamed of yourselves saying bad things about violets.

Whee! If I have more than 12 now, I’ll two-fist it on a couple of days. I will also report the results of putting Coup de Fouet over the top of some of them, which will inevitably happen a couple of times since I can’t go 12 days without a fix.

    I am very curious about E. Duse and would love to hear your opinion on Violette Precieuse, which I love more than Bois de V. I am not *really* a fan of violets, but I love these two, especially VP.
