Do you recognize these?
EDIT: This is a lungwort, thanks to Jane from Food and Flowers! Back in the day, they were like, “hey, the leaves look like diseased lungs! Obviously we should use this plant to treat diseased lungs.” Hence: LUNGwort.
I’ve spent the past hour trying to identify this flower, and now I have officially given up. Do you recognize it? It’s a domesticated garden plant (as opposed to a wildflower), but beyond that I’m lost. The entire bunch of flowers is about as big as an egg.
The cherry trees are in bloom! I missed Newark’s Cherry Blossom Festival in April, but that’s okay ‘cos they didn’t start flowering ’til recently anyway! 🙂
Oh, what, like I was going to visit a GARDEN and NOT take pictures of the pretty flowers? Come on now.
So apparently this could be a pansy or a violet or a viola or a violetta. To a horticulturist, I’m sure it’s obvious which one (or if the terms are interchangeable), but I am not a horticulturist, so I don’t know and can’t tell you. But I can direct you to some Wikipedia pages so you can educate yourself!:
