    Viola odorata | Sweet violet

    Posted on February 22, 2014 by in Wildflowers

    Viola flowers are a sweet Spring treat This lovely little flower face has a beautifully sweet fragrance and is blessedly common here in Sussex. They are often seen on grassy banks, but this one was photographed in flat rough grass by the side of the road. I love to crystallize and eat cultivated violets, which […]
