Shot along a small creek in England- Idlewild Park Burlington, Ky.
Wild violet is a winter perennial, growing 2 – 5 inches tall. It can have a tap root or a fibrous root system, and also can produce rooting stolons and rhizomes. The leaves can vary but usually are heart shaped, on long petioles with scalloped to shallow rounded margins.
The flowers of wild violet range from white to blue to purple and appear from March to June. Wild violet
flowers are pansy-like with three lower petals and two lateral petals on long single flower stalks.

My name is Ron Russell. I have lived in Newport, Kentucky since 1986.
My interest in photography as a hobby goes back to a Minolta camera I found in 1974.I love digital photgraphy because of the freedom it gives me to shoot whatever whenever I want. My Canon SX40 HS is a constant companion.
I’ll add a caption to any photo. Let me know what you want I’ll add it, upload and reply. kybassman50@msn.com
