It's my "favourit" flower. Viola tricolor.

A lovely flower and a serious subject!

That is one gorgeous flower. Has it been adulterated in any way?

What a gorgeous flower. I see Aaoiue has given it's name. I will keep a look out. I have some white and purple violas.

VE, There's a back story everywhere...well, perhaps not on the blog.

Aaoiue, It's one of my favorites as well. Such beautiful colours.

We're Doomed, Indeed.

Dawn, I've always just called them Pansies, but Viola tricolour sounds quite elegant. It just might stick.
