Little Miss Viola

Sometimes I ignore the post I have scheduled, and just take a walk in the garden with my camera to see what inspires me.  Always, always there is some treasure, some bloom, some colour or texture that must be captured.   This morning it was this steadfast ‘johnny jump up’ as my Mom called them, or viola as the proper name.  This remarkably tough self-seeder is one of the early blooms in the spring and here it is in November, after two snows, still turning its cheery face to the light of the day.  I adore these exquisite wee blooms of lemon yellow and velvety purple.  Makes me feel guilty for how many of them I pull from the veggie garden!
