Violeta Africana (Híbrido)

Eu estava a conter-me com as violetas. Há tantas cores, tão bonitas... Nem queria olhar muito para elas para não cair na tentação.
Há umas semanas troquei um keiki de uma orquídea com um amigo e ele mandou-me, juntamente com a orquídea, uma pequena violeta (saintpaulia ionanthe). E pronto. Começou...
Hoje ia a passar por uma florista e vi esta a olhar para mim. É tão bonita! Tive que a trazer comigo...

I was trying no to look at the saintpaulias. So many varieties, so many colours, so lovelly.
A few weeks ago I trade a orchid keiki with a friend and he also send me a small saintpaulia. And that's it. Here I go...
Today I was passing by a flower shop and this beauty was looking at me and I had to bring it home...

I can certainly understand why you wouldn't have been able to resist this African Violet. I wouldn't have been able to resist it either.

I've added your blog to my 'playing in the dirt' links.

What a lovely flower and pretty I have always a few plants in my house. There are placed on a large tray beteen small rocks and green Ivy plants. A miniature garden on my livingroom table.
