I like this bicolor look. This one is going to bloom for a while I think. Lots of new shoots.

The bicolor makes them look more like little faces all turned topsy turvy to me. Fun :-)

Does your African Violets bloom all year in it's setting? You're plants always look so healthy.

Usually they quit from November through January. I give them then to rest and get ready for spring. They start up and go right through a good 6-8 month stretch about mid February. I bought a few new colors to get blooming right now. I'm out of space!

It is a good thing for the African Violets to rest for a couple of months...most flowering plants, trees like a resting period to rejuvenate.
