Out Amongst the Garden and Lawn

A Little Bouquet of May
After milking, Diane gathered a small bouquet of bleeding heart, lily of the valley, violets, and forget-me-nots. Bouquets about the cottage add such a cheer to the day and they are something special to look upon and a delight to smell every time you pass their way!

"The Flower Vase; Containing the Language of Flowers and Their Poetic Sentiments" by Miss S. C. Edgarton, published in 1844.

The book is open to the Violet page with lovely violets resting atop.
The lawn at Corgyncombe is full of blue violets.
