Nature Journal: Sweet White Violet (Viola blanda)

I found some sweet white violets growing in the yard, this afternoon. So much delightful fragrance from such tiny flowers! I didn’t want to sit on the ground and draw so I carefully dug up a little clump with surrounding soil, brought it in to the studio, drew it and placed it back where I found it. The ground is still moist from yesterday’s rain so I think it should be okay… I am so glad and grateful spring has finally sprung!
