Fresh Cut Friday: Primroses and Violets

Day #3:  Fresh Cut Friday with Primroses and Violets


Nothing expresses the language of love more than flowers.  Primroses symbolize "I can't live without you," and white violets symbolize "let's take a chance on happiness."  What a great combination of flowers for a marriage proposal, don't you think!

White violets are also special to me because they are my sorority's flower (Zeta Tau Alpha).  I love my sisters!

Zeta's symbols include the crown, white violet, and strawberries.

I grow African violets in our home, and of course they are all usually white!

Here are some primroses from one of last year's posts.

I have enjoyed my primrose planter over the years.



Please join Liz @ Rose Vignettes for Fresh Cut Friday!

Until next time...

  6. I can't hang on to primrose or African violets, either. I stopped buying them even though they are so pretty! Any tips?!

  7. African violets do fantastic in bathrooms because they love the humidity!

  8. Hi Ricky Jill! What an awesome post. I was never in a Sorority. I kinda feel cheated. :( Our daughter is (was) though and I love hearing all about hers. Their flower is the white carnation. So she was pretty happy about last months FCF. Thanks for the details on the meanings. I ran out of time and had to settle for a quick post. As always thank you for sharing and joining in at FCF! :)

  11. Hey lovely,

    These are so beautiful!

    I'm not that great with indoor plants. They always seem to die on me!! Yours are looking so healthy - it puts me to shame!!
