Violets in South Cheam

by Mary Burstow on 14 March, 2014

One of the things I love about South Cheam at this time of year, is the number of Violets you spot growing in the verges and in peoples front gardens.  They are a delight to behold.  I was especially pleased to see the white violets in Cuddington Way.  I do wonder if someone planted them […]
