violets, a fairy tree, a beaver meal

I picked some violets after a run today--I saw them on a hillside, a really rich, deep purple. At home I have lots of violets too, but the purple ones are more washed out. Then there are the white ones with purple veins, and best of all, the speckled ones.

Here they all are in a little vase:

And here is a photo of one of those trees of gold that grow in fairy woods, along with trees of silver and trees of crystal. This one has been felled by a beaver. Look how beautiful its bark is.

And here is a tree that has been gnawed at three different spots. Three beavers sharing a meal? Or one beaver not satisfied with the taste and hoping it gets better if he tries a different spot?

That bark looks like the richest brocade!

I love the speckled violets.

I love the speckled ones too. I'd never seen them before we moved to this house!

^_^

We're in agreement! Though I did like the really deep, rich purple ones I discovered today, too.

The beaver must have been watching This Old House and must have gone back to the TV set to see if he was doing it right.

"Shoot, I think I was meant to make the cut about two feet further over...."
