Maybe it's that I'm growing weary of winter. Or maybe it's that Valentine's Day is approaching. Either way I was in the mood for flowers this past week. I found this little flower growing wild on a mountain top while on one of our hiking/sketching outings last summer. It's actually a type of Spiderwort. I like to think of them as a wild violet. They are very pretty and it is so nice to happen upon these little blue flowers.
