Yellow Violets

Yellow Violet (Viola pennsylvanica)

I had heard of yellow violets long before I saw one. I found them fascinating. I remember being vaguely jealous of my college friend Kathy who knew where they grew near her home town in Vermont. We have a nice population at the Fen. I thought of her when I took this photo.

I was just going to say that we had them where I grew up in Vermont!

Hi Doug, we have Marsh Marigolds here, but not "Yellow" violets and they would be something pretty to see.
