Summer Quiz!

rob_peace(VIC Aust)August 11, 2005

While you enjoy summer in the northern hemisphere, it's violet season in Australia! I wouldn't like to think you might be losing your violet identification skills 'off season' so offer this selection of violets from my garden for your comments. All are white-eyed violets of similar growth habit with the exception of the pure white, which seems to belong in the same 'series'.

They all look like nice 'Bluemers' to me :)

Or maybe you could name them after azimuths in the sky - 'Horizon' for the palest, 'Zenith' for the darkest, straight overhead...

Or maybe after natural water - 'Lagoon', 'Ultramarine', 'Glacial Lake', 'Vernal Spring'...

Let us know what you decide!
