Johnny Jump Up – November Garden

Daily Image - 6 November 2011 - Johnny Jump Up - November Garden

Two of the things I love most about now living in Southwestern Nova Scotia are the mild winters and incredibly long falls. It is now nudging towards mid-November and the grass is still a verdant green and there is still the odd bit of bright garden to be seen. This Heartsease, Viola tricolor, also known as Johnny Jump Up, is a little worse for wear, but is still offering delight to any passer by.
