Almost missed the violets

Early Blue Violet

These have been blooming for quite some time already, but this one was growing in the deep shade of the Spring Creek canyon. I think I broke all of the usual rules of correct exposure, but it worked and the photo is what I wanted.

  3. Isn’t that a pretty thing? I’m so glad you were able to find some, and I really like this image. It makes the shady spots that violets love tangible, and the color just shines.

    • Thanks Linda! That little plant chose to grow in the quintessential forest violet setting and it was much larger than all of the other violets too.

    • I thought it was one of the prettiest that I’ve ever seen. It was well hidden in the undergrowth.

  6. I sure don’t see anything wrong with it-it’s beautiful! I’ve never seen as many violets as we have here this year.

    • That one is growing in deep shade and it was so pretty I just had to try for a picture.

  9. Ah, sweet little violet. So much prettier in nature than even on my teacup collection (I’ve got several with violets on them).

    • The grass in my yard was nearly covered with violets this spring and of course I couldn’t mow those places, but the wild ones seem extra special.
