The making of Wild Violet Jellies!







I did it! I made beautiful jellies!

 Yesterday evening I went out in my backyard with my apron and red gardening clogs on, armed with a basket lined with a tea towel that I made for myself. Abigail, my beagle kid joined me in my activity. We sat ourselves down on the soft ground and began picking the wild violets. 


 They are in abundance here!

... basketful of lil faces!

..gently rinse the beautiful purple beauties!

...let them steep in boiled water for a time.

...jelly making time!

...LOOK at that gorgeous color!

...jellies! Jars and jars of them!


...two jars just for Hubby and I!


...the Nature's gifts!


Here is the link to that wonderful recipe!

..the time outside was good for me and my beagle, Abigail. Although, she insisted on helping herself to eat from my basket! We came to an understanding.. she picks her own (I showed her how) and eats her own!


Enjoy the Spring!
Abigail and I sure are!


God grant me the serenity...
To accept the things I cannot change...
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdome to know the difference...
Living ond day at a time,
Accepting hardships as the
pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this world as it is,
not as I would have it.
Trusting that he will make
all things right
If I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably
happy with Him,
forever in the next.

Reinhold Neibuhr, 1926
