Sunday May 22. I head outside to the back yard for 5 minutes. Trees are starting to get leaves. Flowers are starting to blossom, a bumblebee with a single red stripe on its Thorax buzzes from flower to flower. I stop to take a picture of the strange flowers growing amongst the grass and surprisingly large amount of clovers (none of the 4 leaf variety of course) using google goggles on my cell phone. Results are inconclusive, but it is known that it is a small flower of a purple variety that grows amongst dandelions and seems to enjoy a bit of shade.

And I get a mosquito bite.

And I kill it.

It begins.

Summer in Winnipeg.

Your flower was probably a mini wild violet - I have tons on my lawn!

That was googles best guess as well, but they haven't bloomed fully yet. I'm surprised by how many there are. Must be the rain.
