The flower kind! I planted some violas a few years ago in a birdbath (a measure to avoid standing water in the yard, to discourage mosquitoes and West Nile virus). Last year, I found in abandoned, empty pots, some viola plants! They must have seeded themselves. I love volunteer plants! And yesterday I took this photo with the macro lens on. It could make a pretty notecard!
I hope to get some more rows onto my Mystery Stole this weekend. It's pretty optimistic, though, to wish to finish clue 2!
