In The Frame: All aboard the Violet Barge

For this episode “In The Frame” we bring you La Maison de la Violette”In July 2000, Helen Vié opened “La Maison de la Violette” on board a barge anchored on the Canal du Midi, to celebrate the delicate flower that made Toulouse what it is the Violet. 

In the warming September sun there seamed nowhere more inviting, than this floating museum dedicated to all things Violet.
