Hello, My lovelies! I am Jessica Dawn.

Commensally, I am a lover of poetry. I could not help but lose my heart and fall in love with such an immaculate beauty, because it speaks a soft lustful language that calls to my very soul.

I am a helpless romantic who enjoys and is partial to Metal, Gothic, and Industrial music. However, my tastes branch out from there to include and grasp the magnificent wonders known as Celtic, Folk, Instrumental, and other such Classical genres. My passions include: literature (reading and writing of every form), poetry (if we were to classify that as something other than a type of literature.... and to express how much I love poetry in general), art (in all of its glorious forms), and marveling nature in each and every one of those categories.

I craft what I find in my convoluted mind, so I believe you will find my page to be a bit arbitrary but enlightening, entertaining, and filled with the love of Mother Nature, life, fantasy, and the mix as they all become one in a conglomeration known as my page.

Oh my! This simply is an incredibly gorgeous view! Those colors! Those flowers! It is beautiful!

Violets are now blooming and can be found pretty much everywhere, so it’s time to make a nice cup of violet tea :)
Collect leaves and flowers, clean them, then dry them or use them fresh. For one cup of tea, you’ll need 2-3 teaspoons of fresh or 1-2 teaspoons of dried violets. Steep for 5-6 minutes.
Violets are good to treat coughs, sore throat, colds, headache and fever, contain several minerals and vitamins and support the immune system. Also have a lovely sweet fragrance and taste :)

This is what I have been dying to try. I bet Violet tea would be just absolutely scrumptious.

General information
There are about 500 species of violet around the world. Most are small perennial herbs, but there are some annuals and shrubs in the family as well. Most have heart-shaped, scalloped leaves (though some are palmate) and the flowers have four upswept petals (like a sail) at the top and one forward thrusting petal (like the keel of the boat) at the bottom. Flowers can be any shade of purple, yellow or white often with a contrasting throat. Pansies come in a huge variety of colors and are often multicolored.
Propagation
Violas and pansies can be easily raised from seed, from cuttings or purchased as bedding plants from your local nursery. There are a huge variety available. Many people consider violets to be weeds in their yard and may let you come in and dig them up if you ask. Plant them in an area of dappled sunshine and mulch well to keep the roots cool.
Violets and pansies are very cold and shade tolerant, they don’t like heat much but will come back again after the heat has passed. Pansies are known for blooming in the spring and then again in the fall.
Violas are used as food by many caterpillars, so be sure to plant enough to share and enjoy the show when the butterflies come to lay their eggs.
Harvesting & Storage
Pinch off blooms as they appear and candy to preserve indefinitely.
Magical Attributes
Violets are affiliated with the planet Venus OR Pluto and are associated with the nymphs of ancient Greek myth as, in the Odyssey,Homer says that Ogygia is “beautiful land of parsley and violets.” Violets are also associated with death and rebirth through the story of Attis.
Violets are useful in love spells and may be carried as an amulet to increase one’s luck in love. Try combining them with lavender for enhanced effect.
Also useful in spells for protection, wishes, peace and healing.
In the language of flowers, violets represent faithfulness.
Healing Attributes
Violas are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and A. They also make a lovely, soothing tea that is used in Chinese medicine.
Culinary Use
Violets and pansies taste floral and a bit celery like. They are great additions to salads and lovely decorations on cookies and cakes. They can easily be candied by painting them with a bit of egg white and sprinkling them with sugar or dipping them in melted syrup.Viola odorata is most often used for this, but any variety is suitable though they may not be as flavorful. Pansies are lovely candied and used as cake decorations.
Violet syrup is used to flavor violet scones and viola essence flavors many liquors. Both the ancient Greeks and the Romans used violets to make wine ”Vinum Violatum”
