This beautiful little viola caught my eye on Monday. It’s just perfect! However, although usually found near the edges of forests it is also a common "uninvited guest" in shaded lawns or elsewhere in our gardens. What do you think? Friend or foe? #friendorfoe

I personally called them friend! Lovely and food for bees as well! Little pops of color! 😍

Definitely a friend in my eyes (& heart). We inherited my late nans garden & there are lots of them which have been here for 100+ years 💜💜

Friend 😊 we have a lot of them and celandine in the grass and I like them. We don’t have a lawn, just grass😂
