October 25, 2011---field violets

Busy, busy day, but somehow one of my favorite flowers slipped into it.  Sue and Ritchie Watson and I were walking around their backyard, when noticed blue violets blooming in the grass. With flower stems no longer than an inch, they had somewhow managed to escape decapitation by the lawn mower. (I've read that dandelions are actually evolving with shorter flower stems to escape mowing.) Anyway, they were my favorite flowers of the day, and I've displayed them in a tiny crystal vase on a linen napkin to give them the status I think they deserve.

And, of course, it's so wonderful when these primarily spring flowers throwing a few more flowers in the fall.
