Specimen #9. Blue Violet
Viola sororia sororia
Photo details: Thomas Mitchell Park, April 2007.
We just hit the park at the right time of year. Not a lot of weeds. The brushy understory wasn't out of hand (or over my head) yet. And the flowers were abundant. The creek was cold and over the road. We also had the great pleasure of going to the park during a weekday afternoon. We were almost the only people in this part of the park.
