Life On A Quarter Acre

Eurasian Sweet Violet (Viola odorata)

Yard weed with fruit resting on surface of the ground

I've never seen a regular flower on these plants, but they all seem to have fruits right at the ground level. I've read that violets often have cleistogamous flowers in addition to their regular, more showy ones. I suppose that the ground-level fruits were produced by these Plan B flowers.
