Macro image of the hardy Violet. I love them because as a child they were the only flowers in our yard my mother let us freely pick. Most consider it a weed. After all a weed is anything that is growing that one does not want in their garden. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
These were another favorite in my garden; now I enjoy them during my walks in Lincoln Park, Chicago.

The South Florida Plant Guide calls this plant a “dream of a tree”. In other words it is another favorite flowering tree.
