violets old and new

Sad thing: was the end of my once beautiful pink violet. It succumbed to crown rot.
But happy thing, another cutting is sprouting! It's 'Lavender Magic'.
The new leaf barely poking out of soil.
My other young ones are looking pretty good!
Only one has sprouted multiple seedlings-
and it's got one with lighter, variegated color and a swirl shape? It's 'Royal Rage'. Very curious to see how that one turns out.
Now my oldest violet is the purple one. Almost done with this round of flowering. I need to clean it up. Outer leaves are yellowing a bit, I think the end of spring, almost-summer sun is getting too strong in this spot. Might need to start shifting houseplants around again.
