VARJES, verjuice, the juice of any green (unripe) fruit. "Sour as varjes."
VIOLITES. Mr. Gurney has been told that it is only of late years that violets have been called anything but violites in the Ivinghoe neighbourhood; the children used to say they were going violiting. Pansies were never known by that name, but were heart's ease, a name now generally reserved for the small wild variety. The red dead-nettle (Lamium purpureum) was sometimes called Honey-suckle, as well as the real owner of the name. Wood anemone was wooden-emmeline. Bird's eyes, or bird's-eye, generally applied to the germander speedwell, is also used for the ground ivy when in flower.
