Day 132 Pretty Violet Wild Flowers
Photograph - Photo
These violet wild flowers surround our campsite. I’ve no idea what they are called, but the full grown ones are about 1 1/2” in diameter. The leaves are brilliant green. I delight in them!

They are beautiful. Our neighbor gave us some but they have yet to bloom.
Hughes got it - it's a Spiderwort. The bees visit and they grow wild and spread. " it is also edible. Try the flowers fresh on a salad or candied for a sweet treat. Stems and leaves can be eaten raw and leaves can also be cooked. The leaves are mucilaginous; the “juice” can be used to soothe insect bites in the same way one would use aloe." rd

No kidding? I’m amazed you can eat them!
Beautiful take of violets, Donna!
Thank you James!

Thank you! Thank you for sharing their name!
Lovely, pretty color
I seem to remember my boss telling me about 45 years ago that they are called Commelina and occur just about everywhere.
Thank you! Yes, they are from the Commelina family. They are called Tradescantia, also spiderwort.
