    With this photo, I finally figured out why it’s called “bird’s foot” violet … the leaves look like a bird’s foot! Not the wide heart-shaped leaves that I associate with violets.

    Stunning photo. So nice to see the moisture. We haven’t had decent rain here in southeastern Colorado since July. Thanks for sharing. JWT

    Beautiful photo. Is that an ant on the petal at upper left?

    A lovely native. When it likes its environment it will reseed happily!

    One of my favorite wildflowers! They bloom here on Cape Cod in early May. Looking forward with great anticipation. Thanks for sending photo and information – – and for all that you do.

    I guess I take the lovely little flowers for granted. At this time of year, they are everywhere here in southern New Jersey. Most lawns are almost purple with these violets. Thanks for the lovely photo.

    Very pretty but surely the “queen of the violets” should smell strongly of violets? Is it fragrant?
