More backyard photos

This is the only bloom in this group this year.

I have 3 colors of violets.

There are a lot of white ones growing in the grass as well as in the garden.

LOVE the color of this one.

I love violets but I don't like the way you can only smell them once before you nose stops working!
Temporarily of course!

Oh, I love your violets! When I was a kid I loved to gather some of each and make an arrangement to take to my teacher. They grew all over our farm, and I had my favorite picking places.
They don't grow anywhere that I've lived in the Southwest, and every spring I miss them. Thank you for sharing pictures of yours!

I planted a coral bell in the same shade last year. Am thinking I should buy some more this year. Such an beautiful and unusal color!

My garden is also full of violets. I love them, but I wish they wouldn't come up all over the place! I have had no luck with coral bells. Maybe I should try again this year.

I can see spring has sprung in your garden. Beautiful!

Thanks for more spring time blossoms. I don't know if it is my new computer or your new format but your blog is awesome.

*Sigh*, If I could get a violet to flower, I would be delirious with joy!
