Do you think amethysts can be the souls of good violets?

The title for todays post Anne of Green Gables. The violets are coming up in quite a bounty due to our rain fall. This year, instead of a tincture I am placing the delightful little flowers on a bed of botanical fat to infuse their intoxicating odor. The process is called enfleurage, we know it originating in France but its possible that it goes as far back as Egypt.

By the way, as I write this, I have the most recent crop sitting here next to me and I must say it is a glorious little posy to be inhaling.
