Hi folks !

I've just found a video on YouTube (French version): just delicious :-)
Hope it's gonna stay longer than the last link I had posted about a song written by Scarlatti :-/

Enjoy :-)
All the best - Thierry :-)

Very nice find, Thierry! I was looking at it closely, and think the video is just a collection of still photos with the "zoom" added as a special effect. The rosulate violets were particularly interesting.

The first link seems to be better than the second, which cuts off early for me.

Hello Thierry and all folks,
I am very proud to see my Video on GardenWeb ( LOL )
There are some violets from my own collection and some other pictures (rosulates) found on the net. I made this video with the free software Picasa

You can see this video on my "YouTube" selection of Aïkido and Kyudo videos that I practice since 2003

Denis=Shirobanasumire ( the meaning is White flower Violet)

Denis, it's quite nice! I've only heard the name Picasa mentioned before, but didn't know what it was for. I guess you can't hide anything on the internet with violets in it from Thierry, he'll always find it eventually ;)

RE: Vidéo :-)

Just watched the video I am falling in love with violets as we speak! But being a "violet virgin" I don't know much... I live in Traverse City MI. and am looking at 3 or 4 ft of snow and its snowing again I do have some french lavender(thinking of you Thierry)and geraniums etc in the windowsill but its not the same. I so appreciate the beautiful pictures, they lift the spirit but I must say my kids hate you 'cause I've been on the computer for two days straight!! The only violets I have are some labrador and some wild. I've been interested in violets because they are a food source for the fritillary butterflies, but I see they are so much more...For the U.S. I have found these sources "canyon creek" "dayton nursery" "blue stone perennials" and "sequim rare plants" Thanks Brandy

Hello !

About violets, there's a few to know and a lot to experiment ;o)
Caterpillars are not welcome among my violets, no need to say, unfortunately I kill them. Don't know if your fritillary butterflies will enjoy european violets. Sometimes some insect only like a king of plant and not another one. However, it's better not to let a viola pedata eaten by caterpillars 'cause that viola is an endangered one and may desappear one day or another.
Canyon creek has a good reputation, good choice I guess :-)
Hope you will love to have all those sweet perfumed violets and keep us informed about them :-)

All the best - Thierry :-)
