Wild Violets

Look down in your yard.  If you haven't sprayed, I bet you will see Wild Violets.   When I went to take a photo today, there weren't any with the beautiful blossom.  Most are violet colored, but they come in many different colors.  The greens are edible both as salad greens, and as cooked greens.  The flower is delicious, and adds a wonderful bit of color to your salad.  The leaves have some substance to them.  The leaves and blossoms are such a treat in the spring, as they are among the first fresh greens you get from your yard.  So good!
