Tuesday Treasures

This week I thought I'd share the lovely African Violets that I grow in pots on my kitchen and bedroom windowsills.   I seem to have the perfect spot for them as they really thrive.  I started off with a plain violet blue
but now I have pink, white and every imaginable shade of purple.
Do you have something you would like to share with us for Tuesday Treasures?  It can be a thing, a person or even an idea.  Just put your details into Mr Linky and share your treasure with us.


  1. Hi Melody,

    Your African Violets are so pretty and yes you need the right position to keep them happy.
    My Mother grew beautiful plants on her kitchen windowsill too.

    Happy Tuesday

  2. Melody they are beautiful and i love the colour.
    cheers shez

  3. Your african violets are beautiful. I love the waxy little flowers. The purple is exquisite. My Nanna used to grow hers on the kitchen window sill as well.

  4. I love Africans violets... They are so simple, but so gorgeus too...

  5. So, so pretty. My grandmother used to grow these, she had a room full of them! They're the only plant I can't seem to kill, too - they thrive for me also. I just LOVE them!

  6. Hello Melody,

    They are beautiful,my sister in law in New Zealand grows these as well. The violets would certainly brighten up your kitchen windowsil.
    Happy days.

  7. I envy you growing African Violets - I always kill mine ;-(

  8. Glorious flowers and such lovely photography.

  9. I adore African Violets too. You definitely have to find the right spot for them though. I haven't introduced any into my new house but you have inspired me and I will get some very soon. Thanks for sharing Melody.

  10. I have a lot of admiration for anyone who can keep African Violets alive. I have not succeeded yet. Yours looks healthy and the colour is beautiful.

  11. My Mum used to grow African Violets and they make such a wonderful show of colour, lovely Melody.


  12. They are so pretty Melody - how wonderful to see them thriving. I'm not very good with house plants - I forget to water them :-/

  13. we used to have heaps of African violets when we B.C. (before children) those were the days when I could look after them. The perfect position helps a lot. We even went to an African Violet show once. Boy that sounds sad lol.

  14. My violets are not near as happy as yours , so pretty !
