Violets?

 

These are violets, right?  Oh I don’t really care.
All I know is these little beauties make me happy whenever I walk by them.
No, really now, I know what they are. I was just testing 😆

So then the ones above, don’t they look like violets as well?
How come they are not violet in color?
These and their purple-ish sisters are all over the lawn and right in front of cottage 1.

I remember when I was a child, my grandmother always smelled of violets.
She had Pastilles which made her breath smell so sweet

How Victorian of her 🙂

And then there are the Columbine on the north side of the front porch.

Much like violets and  pansies,
all they need is a little crevice and they will bloom with all their might – beautiful
