Violets in the sand

The common violet is one of my favorite spring flowers. It's fragrant, pretty, tough and prolific. What's not to love? This particularly sturdy violet pushed its way through a layer of sand deposited a couple weeks ago when the creek overran its banks and flooded the crossing we use to access the back fields. A few other plants dot the mud and sand there, but none that are half so beautiful

Stop the Violets!

Oh, nevermind.

I like them too, but so many people consider them weeds! Most of the ones around here are not fragrant, sadly...
