In a Vase on Monday - Etain

Etain is not only one of the most beautiful violas (some people say it is their queen!), but one of the most resistant. At this time of the year it is full of buds, so I could sacrifice the only one in bloom for today vase. It has not the specific lavender edge, but it still looks fresh and beautiful.



Here there is a post with Etain, when I bought it.

    1. It is planted in a pot that stayed outside until it got very, very cold, -20 degrees and then I took it inside in a cold place.

  4. I also consider that one of the prettiest violas, Anca. And it looks so brave standing tall, surrounded by snow!
