Wild violets are as lovely as they are useful. Here are several different ways to put these pretty purple blooms to good use!
Wild violets were the last thing I was expecting to find in my backyard when I moved into my new home.
It was late September when the house was purchased. All there was to see outback was a neglected garden patch with the last stragglers of a tomato harvest.
It was December when I moved in, and by then there was a thick blanket of snow on the ground. Winter passed, and as it started warming up, I was eager to see what I had to work with.
Finally, the snow melted and the drab brown lawn turned emerald. One day, I looked outside and was delighted to see hundreds of wild violets coming into bloom.
