These clean simple looking faces are among my favourite ones in the garden from Spring through the summer months. They are also known as Sweet White Violet and Viola Incognito and are attractive to bees, butterflies. Yes, they spread and can survive temperatures as low as -40° (both F and C) which is more than I can! They are certainly hated by precise, fussy, ‘just so’ gardeners with velvet striped lawns, who wish only to see displays of flora they have selected and planted. They definitely do not remain where they are put, but spread with delightful abandon. As I am a long way from that kind of a gardener, I enjoy their pure white faces with the pretty ‘whiskered’ blue and yellow pattern. If you look closely at them, it seems that the lines flow perfectly from petal to petal. I confess that I will remove them if they start to overwhelm some less hardy specimens, but generally I love to see them along the edge of the path and between the stones. I wish you all a lovely day, my friends. A Flower a Day #237
