There was one wildflower that was so stunning that looked like a wild Azalea and we did research online and found THIS that it is indeed a wild Pink Azalea. It was beautiful and smelled wonderful like honeysuckle...when we returned on Sunday looking for it we could not find it anymore we found the spot it had been and saw that someone had ripped it out of the ground all that was left was a drying out root ball! It made us so sad that someone would do that! It's such a shame that someone would just take a wild plant, it just seems so selfish because now no one else can enjoy it! It was the only one of it's kind in the area too. What makes me even more upset is whoever this person is will probably kill it by sticking it in their yard.
Here are the cute little wild violets that we spotted.
Here's a good flower focus shot, I believe this is either the "Common Blue Violet" or the "Marsh Violet" Click Here for a link to some Wild Violet info.
Here's a photo with the leaves in focus.
This one is another shade and is a light blue.
This little one is much smaller than the wild violets and has different leaves as well. It's white colored and is called a "Field Pansy"
These little flowers look similar to "Bluets" but don't have yellow centers so I'm not sure what they are.
This is a closer view of them.
