Happy Birthday Grandma Violet!!!

Grandma Violet was born 31 March 1898. She was the best grandma anyone could ask for. She taught me to garden, be brave, and love to read.

I don't have a picture of Grandma Violet to post, but will post her favorite flowers, hollyhocks.

This is for you Grandma Violet. I love you and I know you are with me always. And Katherine Madelyn Violet has your name and your spirit. And love of life. And orneriness.

Lovely tribute to your grandma, Vickie. And the flowers are so beautiful. So nice that your Katherine has her name. Happy Birthday, Grandma Violet!

How sweet you are! Your flower pics look so much prettier than mine - maybe because mine are usually taken inside a gloomy apartment???? I'm sure your grandma is looking down super-proud of what you have become & how big your heart is.

Thanks Mary and Jezebel. Grandma Violet has been a huge influence on me my whole life.

Vickie what a lovely tribute to your Grandma Violet! My Nana taught me gardening and about books too! What wonderful women they were! I'm sure she is smiling down on you and Lady K as I type this!!
