Today's Flower

These two purple flowers are growing wild in the garden. The first one grows in the shade, the second one, seems to prefer the sun. No idea what either of them are called, do you?

Lovely but I am sorry I can't help.

Wild flowers have always a special charm and deserve a place in any garden. I think your first one is called Ajuga, the second one looks like a wild violet.

Bim said...

I love wild flowers - I think the ones in the second photo could be a form of violet.

Wild flowers have their own beauty. Have a wonderful week.

That is a nice flower color.

The first is Carpet Bugle (Ajuga) and the second is a Violet (Viola).

Agree with the last statement- Bugleweed Ajuga and Violet are your mistery flowers!!
Be careful both plants like to invade your garden very quickly.
Have a wonderful Victoria Day!!
Thank you for comments!
