Hairy Violet - Viola hirta

This little Violet is now popping up in sunny places. It grows in little bunches in open forest glades and slopes on dry lime-rich soil. The latin name hirta comes from the latin hirtus that means hairy, ragged and refers to the hairy leaves.

It is found in various places in the southern part of Sweden. The Swedish name is Buskviol.

This was captured from a distance of 1/2 metre with the camera handheld. It has been cropped and sharpened.

Thanks for this lovely sign of Swedish spring-time.

Excellent capture with vivid colors and fine details. I like the background of dry leaves, another manifestation of the changing seasons.

Hi Ulla.
These signs of the spring season are also charming. Natural surroundings, dry leaves and stems underlines the beauty of signs of new life. I like fine sunlight and colours as well as excellent details of every petal of the flowers. Warm regards and TFS.
