Hello folks !

Violets time is coming in France :-) So good :-)

I wanted to share a new one with you called 'cloudy ciel' (ciel = sky). I found it last year in a garden's friend of mine. I first tought it has that strange color 'cause of a chemical treatment so I decided to bring it home. This year, its blooms always have that funny strange color.

In fact, it a bit ugly but I like it anyway :-)

Here is it:


All the best - Thierry :-)

It is odd! But I'm glad you're taking care of it, if only just to see what happens. You're sure it's not some insect, or disease? Just so long as it doesn't turn your other violets the same way :)

Not 'cause of an insect but I think a chemical treatment turns it crazy or change something in its "gene pool".

Wait n see :-)

All the best - Thierry :)
