Botanicals | Yellow Wood Violet

Every time I find a flower that I don’t see every day, it constitutes a “favorite find.” And as I mentioned regarding Nuttall’s Violet, I’ve always had a soft spot in my botanical heart for the violet family. This little beauty is one I’ve only seen one other time in the Black Hills, and that was down near Little Falls. It definitely loves moisture, and this one I found near Battle Creek recently.
