Wordless Wednesday #49~ Springing Wild Flowers

From my backyard.




 I thought the flower above was purple fetch, but I can't prove myself right with Internet pictures.
I still haven't come up with a name for the purple flower below that creates the beautiful carpet of green leaves all summer.  The purple flower closes at night.  Some flowers will have 3, 4 or 5 leaves.
I know some brilliant person out there knows the name of these wildflowers.
Update:  I have finally found a web page to help me identify the blue (2nd & last) flower.
It apparently is the "Common Blue Violet."

The purple flower in the 2 pictures above is the "Purple Deadnettle."
