A couple from the front yard - I'm pretty sure the 4-pointed ones are bluets (?) - not sure of the other purplish ones with the yellow center. They are about 1cm in size...

The flowers look like bluets, but the leaves don't. I'd guess something in the same family (Rubiaceae), but I don't know what.

The others are certainly violets of some kind.

This one is from some tiny cactus in my dad's garden, the largest cactus in the pic below are about the size of my thumb.

paulh - The white 4 petal ones are Bluets, I can't remember the other one. I looked it up last summer and can't remember. They're blooming here now too, I got some shots of a few a couple of days ago and still haven't looked them up again. Similar to Violets but not the same. The two upper petals are completely different. I'll have to look it up now...

paulh - Update. Got some more shots of the same flower yesterday and today and looked it up, it's a Wild Pansy. Member of the Violet family, identifying marks are the yellow center and two upper petals that are longer and narrower than Violets. Usually also more distinctly separate petals than violets appear to be until a closer look,.

Thanks for the info! I think most of them have disappeared now due to the warmer weather - but a cold front came thru here, so maybe they'll stage a comeback...
