Seeing those little violets today reminded me of my recent visit to Poland, particularly the Krakow region, and all of the flowers I photographed along the way.
The image of Divine Mercy, shown here, is from the Shrine of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. I observed that the churches commissioned an artist to paint an original image for their chapel or side altar (instead a mass-produced copy). In this one, Jesus is standing in a field of wild flowers. More on this.
In cities and busy towns, flowers don't grow as randomly as in the country. Most often someone has placed or planted them with care as a tribute, as a sign of love or devotion or just as a friendly greeting for others to enjoy.
On the right, a gardener is dropping off a load at the Divine Mercy Shrine (complex) in Poland. It was rainy in Poland at the end of April, but the flowers didn't mind.
With love from Poland:
