This is our beautiful Easter cake. I used my favorite orange cake recipe, and sprinkled fresh little violets on top. (Did you know that violets are edible?)
A few weeks ago I noticed these tiny violet leaves beginning to unfurl in my garden. (I knew where to look for them.) I dug them up.
This is what the roots of the violet look like. There is a knot of thick roots at the base of the plant.....are they called tubers?
I planted the violets in a little pot with garden soil and put them in a sunny window in the kitchen.
