Viola ‘Irish Maid’
Simple yet elegant, compact and perfectly formed, she repays close attention. For me it reflects/depicts so much about wider nature. The wonderfully suffused subtle colours of a golden dawn to the purple violet haze of a dusk. Graduating to the dark ‘map of the universe’ face, this contrasts with the bright, bright yellow ‘sunrise’ at the event horizon of the ‘vortex’ at it’s mysterious, disappearing centre. I could live a whole lifetime lost in this flower!
