Bluets and Violets

Bluets (Houstonia) growing in the cracks of bricks

White and purple violets 

I love these tiny early blooming spring wildflowers. The Houstonias are particularly appealing. When I first see them each year, I have to get down on my knees and greet them at close range. Violets are plentiful in my yard. I have heard of people preferring grass to violets in their lawn and taking after them with a vengeance, but these people are surely warped. Keep on the lookout for these beauties as you stroll about this spring.
