RE: double flowers

Well observed, Denis!
And a very good name ;-)
When you start looking at violets closely, you start to notice things like that. It is surprising what abnormalities occur. Keep looking; I do!

I have seen violet flowers with twin spurs, flowers with no spurs, and flowers with fused sepals and petals, and flowers with subsidiary flowers coming out of the flower stem at the bracts, as well as pods with 4, 5, and even just 2 valves (rather than the normal 3).
But your plant/photo is a new one to me :)
