PhotoHunt - Purple
My neighbour's front yard is full of chinese violets and they are constantly blooming all year round. It's refreshing to come across such delicate herbaceous groundcovers because it has a pleasant fragrance as well as to see. These purple beauties are like my little friends swaying gently in the breeze, nodding at me and waving farewell everyday.
The petals are pale purple but the lower part of the corolla is brighter colour with a network of purple veins and it attracts bees, wasps and butterflies. The wasp was busy collecting nectar when I took this shot.
