  1. These are so rich in color and cheer!

  2. We call this type of violet ‘confederate soldiers.’ Anyone know exactly why? Anyone else know them by this name?

    I live in Wisconsin, (smack dab in the Midwest of the USA.)

  3. I loved the colour too, Quinn. Not sure about the name, Bo, but it would interesting to find out!

  4. These violets really do have cheerful faces. I am not sure how they could become ‘confederates’. Hopefully this mystery will be cleared up soon.

  5. I adore wildflowers!
