Mona Lavender - Wordless Wednesday

In the northeast United States, covered in snow and shivering in bitter temperatures, what we need now is a picture of a flower.

This is something called Mona Lavender, which is actually a type of Swedish ivy.  I have a plant in my bedroom window but I found this in a nursery and it spoke to me of spring.

  1. I can only imagine how it feels in that biting cold, imagining the spring colours around you! I guess that is the power of the human mind and the imaginative power that we humans are endowed with, that lets us think of spring in the midst of a severe winter. Your post resonates with me as I'm going through a particularly stressful time on the family front and yet, thinking of a beautiful holiday, which is nothing short of a fantasy at the moment!

  2. Lovely to see pretty flowers in the dead of winter. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Alana,

    A splash of purple to make the gray of winter prettier. Well...we did get a bit of sunshine this week but yesterday wasn't one of those days and I think the rest of the week is going to be cloud covered. It's colder than I like which comes as no shock to you but thankfully we aren't dealing with snow or ice. *keep fingers crossed* Unfortunately, winter isn't over and we'll no doubt get hit before it March rolls around. Keep warm and think spring thoughts. That's what I'm doing. :)

  4. Lavender is my favorite color and aroma. Nice.

  5. This is so lovely, Alana

    I'm glad I learnt something new today. And so wonderful to have you link-up with us on #WW. It's been a while. <3
