while waiting for a friend to join me for a walk, I laid on her grass and snapped these. One of my favourite flowers. They are tiny, delicate and hardy! They will grow almost anywhere!

Great stuff. So, they are called violas? I can't quite tell is this the same flower?

Yes, I would say that's the same. There are many, many various colours of violas. They are favourite spring flowers here too.

@Bambi: Very nice perspective you chose for your shot!

Beautiful shot Bambi.
Love it when the violets come up in the bush as they are some of the first colour we see, along with the Marsh Marigolds.

Nice B and Ig too. I've heard these called "Johnny Jump Ups" also or is that something similar but different?
