and cream can also be seen. Bi-colored violets can also be found.

In the following paras I will narrate some more interesting facts about
the violet flowers.

Violets as Food and Medicine
Some small animals like rabbits love to eat entire violets. Also Mice,
mourning doves, wild turkeys and ruffed grouse eat its seeds. Also moth
and butterfly larvae eat violets too.

nurseries in Attica, just outside Athens. They were harvested to make

During the course of the history, the Greeks and even other societies
grew and garnered violets for their numerous uses. Lastly, in the 18th
century, cultivators in France refined wild violets. With prodigious
attention, they carefully chosen several plant lives and crossed them. The
outcomes were called the "Quatresaisons". This also includes the
enormously famous Russian violet of the late 19th century; these plants
backed much to the violets we produce today.

the receptors in your nose for more than a few minutes. For the period of
that time, your sense of smell will be out-of-order, so you will not be able
to smell anything at all.
