    These flowers are growing around some tree saplings in my garden. Can any other you detect what it is? I think it's very pretty. :3

    Hi and Welcome from So. ME SYP. I'm not sure what it is, but it sure is pretty. I'm sure someone here will be able to tell you what it is because there are so many knowledgeable people here. Can't wait to hear about you and your garden. Enjoy!

    Thank you for your warm welcome. And hmmm, it is a mystery. Yes, it is very pretty. I don't know where it came from. :p And hopefully someone will. :)

    Hi SYP, the blue/purple plant may be a spiderwort. Welcome aboard.

    Hi there and welsome to GardenStew from up north in Scotland. :-D
    I can't make out the leaves of your mystery flowers too well but it could be Speedwell. Spiderwort has three petals on each flower so I don't think it's that.
    Any chance of another photograph showing the leaves and flowers at closer range?

    Hi there, from the colour of the flowers I might guess violets as I have lots in my garden right now. Any chance of a close up shot of bloom and/or leaves?

    Hi SYP! Greeting s from New England. Hope you enjoy this site, the folks here are great.

    Could your plant be blue-eyed grass? (Sisyrinchium) It is difficult to see in the photo what the leaves look like. Blue-eyed grass is a iris relative and the leaves look alot like grass. Sometimes it grows wild in a meadow or lawn and the leaves are all but indistiguishable.The flowers tend to bloom at the tips of the leaves. The whole plant is short, maybe 6 inches tall.

    Good luck with your identification. If you are able to take a clearer picture (including the leaves!) we can probably help you more.

    Thank you to everyone for their warm welcomes. :)
    I am truly swaying towards the flower being wild violas at the moment, but there are parts of it where I think otherwise. Still, it remains a mystery. :p

    Sorry but the new pictures are not really much more help. I think the top one may be a Geranium of some sort
    Very difficult to get close ups without a really good camera isn't it?
