Here's a beautiful flower you can find in the wild. It goes by many names -- Pale Violet, Cream Violet or Striped Cream Violet -- but it has only one scientific name: Viola striata.
Dianne Machesney found it blooming at Buck Run last weekend.
If you live in Pennsylvania go look for it early today. The weather will soon become awful. I heard the word "snow" for tomorrow! 🙁

p.s. Fill your bird feeders! The birds will need extra energy to wait out the storm.
