Every Spring my blog posting are filled with a variety of Violets. To be honest I understand some of might be thinking, “Why so many Violet photographs?”
Each violet reminds me of my Mother as they were always her favorite flower. She wore Devon Violets and lovingly tended the patches Violets blooming along the walkway leading to our front porch.
My Mom passed away in August of 2010 as I was rediscovering my passion for Nature photography. In February of 2010 after the winter snow melted I was hiking the Goat Rock Trail in Hot Springs National Park. Amid the dried Leaves and dots of green I noticed a tiny purple flower. It was the discovery of that pretty Bird Foot Violet pushing through the Forest floor debris that begun my love affair with wildflowers. I printed the photo and sent it to her in Oregon. During that Spring I regularly sent her photos of the different violets I discovered while hiking.
I hope you will continue to read my blog each spring even though they will as always be filled with Violets.
Love to ALL!
