We have an abundance of wild flowers and the first ones this year (except dandelions) are the wild violets. They grow so low to the ground that you have to look carefully to not step on them. Growing season is so short for wildflowers that when we get two warm days in a row they grow super fast and literally pop out over night. I guess the wildflowers know that if they don't produce their beauty when they have a chance that they may be covered in snow before they get the chance... I have always like the demure little violets as they appear so quickly and then they are gone for another year.
