These images were taken during a walk in the woods. These woodlands are surrounded by suburbs. So there are wildflowers as well as perennial flowers from gardens that find their way into the woods and thrive. The blue and yellow carpet of ground cover is quite pretty on the forest floor. The tall white flowers, which I assume are wildflowers, grow in abundance near the walking paths.
The weather is getting a little warmer and we have had some rain showers so spring flowers are starting to bloom. I think it’s time to take another walk in the woods.

I’m assuming from the large area covered in Forget-me-not flowers that they are perennial. Seeds are found in small, tulip-shaped pods along the stem to the flower. Apparently the pods can attach to clothing, transplanting the small seeds elsewhere.
I hope I have identified these Viola correctly. Viola are most often spring blooming and pollinated by insects.
These tightly bound buds may be leaves to a shrub rather than a flower but I found them interesting.
