violets are blue

Shorts - Zara
Top - Gift from France
Scarf - 2nd hand

One of the nicest things in summer is flowers. We have wildflowers in vases pretty much all the time as long as it's possible. When I was wee picking flowers for mama was my favourite "chore". It's still nice, I don't think about it as a chore anymore though.

Violets are my favourite flowers. It probably springs from the fact that my 3rd name is Orvokki, which is Violet when translated. (It could be Pansy as well, but I don't like the word. I don't even use it. For me pansies don't exist, they're all violets.) I loved that name so much and when I was around 5 I tried to make people use it as my first name. No luck there. I'm quite happy to be Laura nowadays but violets are still my favourites.
