African Violets- New Addition in Gardening

Last weekend, while visiting Toronto Botanical Garden for a Sunday morning walk, there was an African violets show and sale in the garden hall. There were not too many vendors, but the cute plants indeed caught my attention. I never knew that African violets can look like a mini orchid, and I bought two home!

While other vendors might include the name of the African violets, and/or a short description of how the flower looks like; this vendor included a color picture of the flower! I just couldn’t resist…

I really hope I can grow them to see they flower one day!
