Cream Violet

Published by at 7:30 am under Phenology,Plants

Here’s a beautiful flower you can find in the wild.  It goes by many names — Pale Violet, Cream Violet or Striped Cream Violet — but it has only one scientific name:  Viola striata.

Dianne Machesney found it blooming at Buck Run last weekend.

 

If you live in Pennsylvania go look for it early today.  The weather will soon become awful.   I heard the word “snow” for tomorrow!   :(

p.s. Fill your bird feeders!  The birds will need extra energy to wait out the storm.
