Grandma Beverly Wessman enjoyed many varieties of flowers. Her dahlias and roses and lilacs were always spectacular, and inside the house she had a number of African violets in decorative containers. This is not one of hers, but this picture of a pink African violet is in honor of her birthday.
April 22: Emily sent a picture of one of Grandma's African violets which is blooming right now:
