Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

White Violets among the Violets

Canadian white violets (Viola canadensis) are growing among the regular ones in our backyard. They are tiny and delicate flowers. You need to lie down on your belly to photograph them properly and make their inner splendour visible. The pine cone in the second picture was a pretty addition to complement the violet’s beauty. My wife and I are happy to see them grow in abundance as soon as winter has loosened its grip. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve never seen a pure white violet in the wild…or anywhere else. We get almost white violets in the yard but they are just pale form blues and the centers, stamens etc, are still blue. Lovely shots, Peter.
