Violette albine.

Sono le violette di sempre,  quelle che noi italiani conosciamo benissimo perche’ sono fra le prime a fiorire all’inizio di Marzo;  quelle che chiamiamo anche violette di Parma,  ma che si chiamano propriamente:  viole Mammole (Viola odorata).   Il loro colore e’ viola,  solitamente,  ma con l’aiuto di un’amica ho scoperto che in Italia esiste anche la varieta’ bianca,  o albina.  Non meno graziosa.

Albino violets.    The well-known garden violets,  the first to bloom in Italian gardens in March,  are usually violet-coloured but  have an albino sister-type:  they look exactly the same and are as perfumed,  they are simply totally white. I discovered them in a friend’s garden.

  1. I don’t think I’ve seen white garden violets before. Our wild self seeded ones are purple. Your photography of them is outstanding, so beautiful. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
