326/366: Lovely Little Violas

326/366:  Lovely Little Violas
This tiny beauty look almost artificially colored to me because the colors are so outrageous! Steve and I found groups of these Violas scattered here and there among the grounds at the Harry & David public garden. Getting a proper image required a lot of looking around for just the right arrangement of fore- and background flowers, but was a grand challenge that I thoroughly enjoyed. Then, I needed to scrunch down very low to get the perspective right. In the end, I got just what I was hoping for!

Those pretty little flowers grow everyw here here in Denmark Janet. They have many 'Popular' names here just as they do in the UK.
Viola tricolor, Also known as Johnny Jump up (though this name is also applied to similar species such as the yellow pansy), heartsease, heart's ease, heart's delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me, come-and-cuddle-me, three faces in a hood, or love-in-idleness, is a common European wild flower, growing as an annual or short-lived perennial. It has been introduced into North America, where it has spread. It is the progenitor of the cultivated pansy, and is therefore sometimes called wild pansy; before the cultivated pansies were developed, "pansy" was an alternative name for the wild form.

Another exceptional image. I love the blurred "echos" of the main (very sharp and beautiful) subject.
