I took another picture of the aloe vera plant blooming and see how it came out....
I was deadheading these viola's for a customer, and then notice the sweet aroma coming from them. They have a great smell and have to be moved, brushed to get the full aroma of them. Try some today. Sorbet viola.
The sweetness of the violets’
Deep blue eyes,
Kissed by the breath of heaven,
Seems colored by its skies.

Planting and Growing Viola
Make sure your Violas “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is partly shady to full shade. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
