Vibrant violets

This photo is a couple of weeks old now, but we still have violets in bloom, and I wanted to share this with you before they have all withered to provide the fodder for future generations. How can one not love a violet—or better yet, a quartet of them?

    The blue of the violets is nature’s most alluring colour. And against the green of the leaves the whole thing is exquisite. Great shot Gary and thanks for sharing it.

    Beautiful violets. Love the vibrant colors you’ve captured. It brightens my day just looking at it. I know these are not quite the same but I used to grow African Violets. It’s amazing the colors and varieties you can cultivate with time and patience. Personally though, I like these wild ones the best. Thanks for brightening my day, Gary.

      My mother used to grow the African ones too–maybe that’s one of the reasons that I’m so fond of the family (I, too, am quite partial to the wild ones). You’re so welcome!
