Not wild, but real flowers!
The cultivated violets in the lawn at our Greenville center are doing such a good job of surviving the frequent snows that I'm featuring them here even though I normally am not drawn to domesticated flowers. They and the daffodil were looking pretty good today despite the wind and cold and a new inch of snow. The shrub whose name I do not know was sporting a healthy crop of new leaves even though there hasn't yet been enough daylight to stimulate the development of chlorophyll. I've titled that one "Time to Green Up." When it flowers I'll try to identify it and feature it here again.
