Blue Violet... Spring 2010

blue violet
As best as I'm able to determine, this is a Viola sororia blossom, also known as the Common Blue Violet. Wikipedia mentions that it is frequently considered a weed and grows freely in gardens once it gets a foothold. The tiny flower certainly is pretty... but I do try to keep them from spreading everywhere in my garden!

  1. It looks remarkably like V. riviana, but then, those promiscuous violets are hard to tell apart.
    I am so grateful for those little lilac heads nodding all over the place, that I let them run wherever :-)


Thanks so much for stopping by... I try to return all visits and appreciate yours greatly.
