A friend returning from France brought me a tin of *The’ Violette, Jardin d’Elen* that the little plum teapot is steeping. The aroma is just like being surrounded by fresh violets in the garden. Violets are one of my favorite flowers.
I have some correspondence to catch up on, so took my tea tray to the secretary with the pull out shelf to sip while I write. Won’t you join me? Oh my, it tastes just like violets smell…..wonderful! A violet cream macaron and chocolate covered cashews for Elevenses today. Enjoy!
“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
