Friday's flower

Today's flower is the common dog violet, Viola riviniana.  Apart from a greener and more wooded area in the north of Colonsay, most of the island's land mass is moorland and rock.  The dog violet can be seen as tiny pinpricks of colour in amongst the buff coloured grassland.  Often there is just one little flower.  Modest, and completely delightful.

  1. Very sweet splash of colour against a natural back drop!
