While playing with my new camera, found this little flower growing wild in the backyard. No bigger than a nickel. As well as practice for macros, I was sure someone here would know what type of flower this is

Viola I think.


Quote:
Violas are like small-flowered pansies of mixed parentage, although not all varieties have blooms quite as rounded as the larger kinds. They are not poor relations, but delightful garden plants in their own right, making a sparkling and lengthy display in rock gardens, small flower beds, containers of all kinds and as edging to paths.

My first guess was Pansies but the description above could be applicable. Nice pictures.

Thanx for the link Ferny. I am blown away by the photos posted on this site. I see I have a lot to learn. Two weeks ago I never imagined lying on the lawn, taking a picture. :-)

It is a pansy, and a viola. Scientific family name Violaceae, genus viola. The family of viola's, violets, and pansies. They are perennials, but some are treated as annuals.

The first picture is a 'Johnny Jump Up'. They tend to grow wild and are some of the first in spring around here. Nice shot.
