Description

Excerpt from The Violet Book The Rose is the Queen of the English garden by Right Divine and by general acclamation. Other favourites stand near her throne. The clear-smiling carnation, the pure lily of the valley, the fairy-like but ambitious sweet pea, who casts an eye upon the very crown itself, and the violet, the violet who like King Cophetua's beggar maid wears her honours with a sweet remembrance of her lowly past. Her message is one of gentleness and love. She makes no display in courtly function, not for her the gay decoration of the ball-room, nor the glow ing light of the feast. But who so welcome to the bed of the sick, to the hand of the convalescent, or on the desk of the writer?
