When I think 'violet,' my mind always wanders into the garden or along a path in the woods. . .
And shade the violets, That they may bind the moss in leafy nets. John Keats
My favorite artwork that centers around violets is by Albrecht Dürer, the father of the Northern Renaissance. This was done circa 1503.
Hath the pearl less whiteness
Because of its birth?
Hath the violet less brightness
For growing near earth?
