A stunning banner! Really fine job. Beautiful colors and great texture captured. Plus the pesky seam on this perhaps wider-than-most screens is barely visible. I tip my hat to you. Acorn

Thank you all, for your nice comments and thumbs-ups! My mum always had beautiful African violets on the dining room table. I can grow almost anything in my yard (if I pay attention to my zone), but I really have no luck with indoor plants at all. Somehow I manage to kill them all. However, in the past two years, since Mum passed, I've kept these alive in her honor, and they always surprise me when they bloom so nicely.

Lovely sentiment, Nancy.

Nancy, I was never very interested in African violets until my mom passed away and I inherited hers. They are blooming nicely with very little care, so I'm happy about that.
