Common Blue Violet (Viola sororia sororia) LaBagh Woods Chicago Cook County IL April 2016 Week #16 Jeff Skrentny IMG_0771
I think this is wild violet but not totally sure. It's a weed that grows in my yard at home.
Found at the Cross Roads Cemetery at the intersection of Route 910 and Irwin Road, Allison Park, PA 15101
We see the evergreen leaves of Missouri violet all winter in our neighborhood park but I was surprised to see a flower bud on this plant in late October (2nd image).
