Common Yellow Violet - Viola pubescens

The Common Yellow Violet will soon add its bright yellow pattern to the floor of the dry woodland. This is one of the brightest of the spring flowers and is impossible to miss when the sun reflects from the lemon yellow petals.

The blooms have not yet appeared, but the leaves are quickly pushing upward. Look for the pubescence beneath the leaves, especially along the veins.
