blue violets

9 Apr

violetThe violets are beginning to open, and soon the lawn will look like it’s covered in purple snow.  They are the state flower of Illinois and it seems almost unpatriotic not to have at least a few.  Just a few is the challenge.  Many people dislike violets because they spread so fast, and in truth they can be a nuisance in flower beds where they can overpower less vigorous growers.  I like them for the dark green of the leaves, which for someone like me for whom growing a good grass lawn is a major challenge, anything green is welcome.
