    Hello everyone,
    One of my many hobbies is growing and showing african violets. I dont do the best job at taking care of them but i do an ok job. I usually forget to water so im working on watering when i need too. I am a member of the Cincinnati African Violet Society and over the weekend we had our yearly show and sale. Seeing all those beautiful varieties got me reved up and ready to get my baby plants going. I had one plant in the show and got a First Place Ribbon and Best in Class Ribbon. I will post some pictures of the show if anyone would like to see them. I ended up buying a few leaves and 2 plants at the show and the plants have now become 2 of my new favorite varieties. I hope i get to meet some more african violet lovers out there and see photos of some of your varieties.
    Thanks Lisa

    I have had them on and off through the years.It was my grandmothers favorite pass time raising violets.
    Her windows would be full of babies.I just started a couple pots of new babies.They havent bloomed yet will take awhile .
    I like to see the new ones that come in to the Big box stores.I could dig up old photos.
    It might take a month of Sundays to find them.
