The Blooming Back Forty

Looking back past our barn, I noticed a white sprinkling on the ground.

Turns out, it's violets.

We had lots of violets back here when we moved in, but then we started using this part of the yard, while Emma was young. We haven't really used it the last few years, and they seem to have recovered from our foot traffic. I know they can be invasive, but I really love violets. They just seem so charming and romantic.

  1. They're beautiful! We gardeners attempt sweeping vistas like this, but Mother Nature does it best. I know what you mean about violets--they're encroaching on parts of my garden, but I hate to pull them out. Love the variegated hues, too; all I have are the deep purple ones.
