Violet in My Yard



It is always wonderful to look for wild flowers in my back yard, and these violets had really taken off this year after so much rain that we're having! In fact, violets are covering everyone's lawn. Some have more than others, but violets thrive in wet weather.

  9. I just recently learned that violets grow wild. I have only ever seen them bought from a store and sitting on someone's windowsill. I never had luck with them and they certainly wouldn't survive in the heat we have here. Rain doesn't come our way often. Enjoy your pretty little wildflowers. Best wishes, Tammy

  10. It seems like nothing that pretty is blooming around here. I know that's not true, but it just seems like it when I see blooms like that.

    I love purple flowers.

  11. Those photos are beautiful. I can't imagine a lawn covered in them. We will have some in the Spring here in Australia, but not profuse like that, Mave
