This is probably Viola missouriensis and it grows as a delightful ground cover in my backyard. It is always one of the early signs of Spring. To visit other macros visit our wonderful host, Lisa at

On a personal note, I just wanted to thank everyone who left a comment last week. I have been doing double duty at my job lately and was really down and almost didn't post. I imagined noone was interested in the tiny flower. I was delighted to find so many comments. It made my day a lot better!

  1. Hiya,
    I love violets and am trying to get a collection together. There are so many different ones.
    This v. missouriensis (if that is what it is) looks similar to riviana, but obviously there are differences. Do you have any others growing near?

  2. Spring ~ oh how I love the sound of that!

  3. Oh, so pretty! It really is a delicate beauty. Great shots.

    Thanks for your supportive comments on my post-cyclone Yasi post. It sounds like you know exactly what it's like in the aftermath of significant weather events like Yasi. Not much fun at all!

  4. Tiny yellow violas grow wild near my home but there are none in my garden.

  5. Oh my gosh...that last photo, with the lighting on the blossom bud is just simply outstanding!!!

  6. Such a pretty dainty little flower. Great shots

  7. I wish spring was on it's way here. Lovely photos!

  8. Hello David,
    those are just gorgeous macros. Finally the Spring is here in Houston or as per the temperatures and humidity from yesterday, I actually could say, the summer is here.
    Just think back 2 weeks ago!

    Best Regards
    Paula Jo

  9. So delicate, size wise and colour wise!

  10. Hope things are going better this week. :) I really love violas! That last shot is very well done!


I always appreciate your comments & questions! Happy Gardening from David/ Tropical Texana
