Dear Aunt Vera,
About 1978, I think, Mrs. Hammit gave me and my mother-in-law some vinca major vines, shasta daisies and violets out of her yard. My favorites were the violets. But they only lasted til winter. The daisies lasted several years, and were always a welcome surprise each spring. The vinca major vines are in my west flower bed even today! And how I love them!
Caddie, (possibly misspelled - but I had to use it, as I also loved her nickname), was a dear sweet lady. I will always think of her when I see vinca major vines, shasta daisies or violets.
And I think I'll try to grow me some violets this year ~

Love you! May you and your family continue to be blessed and comforted.
