full moon

 to the west
to the east
in my back yard
(on my mind
the next thing brewing)
and this violet
was blooming today
in my garden
11/9

what a beautiful bloom (and moon)

The moon is enchanting tonight... but the flower, as beautiful as it is, gives me the willies that its blooming now. I had a dandelion blooming last week... !

Velma said...

ronnie, these things sustain me
and valerianna, it is weird, but these little guys will bloom in snow sometimes, if the ground is warm enough. i saw hawkweed today, too

Velma, Johnny Jump Ups have many tricks up their sleeves...to understand is the question.

Diana Angus said...

Look at that beautiful, perfect flower with the just right complementary color in the middle to help the shades of violet glow!

Velma said...

henrietta, this little violet has others in the same bed, johnnys and viloas and sometimes they pop up and see the sun in november!
diana, i love complements. and this violet will become something new very soon.

superb shots of the moon--i was hoping to get some myself but we're having snow flurries.

the shading is stunning, my moon is drifting in a sea of stormy clouds

ahhh violet scent!
nice contrast that of the violet on the distressed surface.

Velma said...

lf, yay snow!
jean, that shot is, can you believe it, the sun!
neki, i didn't sniff the tiny thing, being so involved in it's visuals. silly me.

Ha-ha! Your moon is my moon. That makes us sisters.

Velma said...

moonsisters, i like it!

kaiteM said...

you can easily see which one is male and which female of the top 2 pics. i would call your flower a viola

Velma said...

yes, kaite, and it is a viola. but in researching the violet family i found there are many sizes among each subgroup. so i've taken to calling them violetes instead of violas because some folks think i mean the instrument viola.

To me, wild violets have the most intoxicating scent on this glorious earth! But, that is simply my personal preference. Lovely photo, Velma. Thanks for sharing.
