The violets parade has begun! These were the first I saw, a drift of white violets on the edge of the woods. There are a lot of violet varieties … it appears that this is Common Blue Violet which is a variable species that can occur as white or as in this case, white smudged with lavender. They are native.
Common Blue Violet (Viola sororia)
Last year’s violet posts were around April 19 … Just so you know I’m keeping track.
