The Name Says It All

On my recent trip to Prairie State Park in southwest Missouri, I found some Bird’s-foot Violets (Viola pedata) still blooming, so I made some images of the leaves of this plant, where the common name originated. You might remember my original post on these beauties, about 4 weeks ago (“A Little Birdie Told Me”), where I discovered the identity of these lovely flowers.

Here is a photo of the flower of the Bird’s-foot Violet (the leaves are in the blurred background in these 2 photos):

And here is an image that better captures the leaves of this beautiful plant:

Using a bit of an imagination, you can see the “bird’s foot” :o)
