the pretty violet, so humble yet so resilient! and that smell! i truly love those tiny flowers, because they are among the first to herald the end of winter!

@franz: Can you smell them? I have tried, and I don't think I am able to. It might be the species? They are at peak bloom in my yard right now, forming a cheery spring welcoming committee. Hoard, actually. ;) I love them.

Great find, lovely flower and so nice to see the flower is protected by that strong branch.......:-)

@Marleen: Thanks, Marleen. That is right, it did seem to be in a nicely protective spot. Violets in my yard are in full bloom right now, but on that path there were very few. The wetland area needs a bit of renovation in spots, as invading plant species have taken over the more native vegetation. Actually, I suppose one could also consider a violet an invasive...but they are so pretty!

You have a great eye for interesting details! I am sure that most people would have overlooked this tiny beauty.

@Arnd: The light and shadow at that moment captured my attention. And that little blossom in just the right place!

You framed the flower nicely with the tree.

@Julie Brown: Thanks, Julie. The tree branch had landed just right. What caught me most was the light/shadows.
