Well I've just discovered this forum! Pansies and violets are some of my favorite flowers.

My lawn is very overgrown so far this year, I need to get out there with a weed whacker (my mower is broken). But one benefit has been seeing the beautiful wild violas that are established in my lawn.

Like this one..

Love your viola's Knip, especially the first one. I've got one
similiar to your 3rd pic I am going to post to see if it's the same as yours.
I dug it up at my old house when we moved 4 yrs ago. Couldn't part
with it.
