Have the happiest of Easters
And the springiest of Springs!
Violet is for faithfulness
Which in me shall abide
Hoping likewise that from your heart
You will not let it hide
The sweet scented and the dog violet are both classed as herbs, so can be used in a salad. Another use is in cordials, preserves and tea, and don't forget crystallised on the top of cakes and chocolates.
