Strangely, though the very name “violet” is a shade of blue, I had a lot of trouble finding a blue violet to share. Everywhere are white violets. They are on lawns, garden beds, ditches and in the woods, but I really had to search for this blue flower. I found it in one or two places but they were difficult to access, or poor lighting and over a few days I took several photos that weren’t good enough before I found this one! This particular little one was in the woods, surrounded by its white brothers and hiding in the undergrowth at the edge of the path. His white whiskers show up in lovely contrast against his deep blue. I have to look hard to find some of my gems, but it’s worth the effort, as so many things in life. PS After I composed this post, I received another flower alert from one of my Scouts and I found a whole lovely, beautifully lit patch of these blue beauties that were in her garden as well! Although I photographed them, too, I am leaving this one as it was so hard earned! A flower a Day #252
