Actually, this is a mistaken post. The first 3 photos are for the actual posting, located in Island Cove, about 200 meters from this recording. The first 3 photos is that of a primrose (possibly bird's eye primrose. Family: Primulaceae Species: Possibly Primula laurentiana The observation comments made for this sighting (the first observation sigthing at the top) are for the 4th photo.

It certainly looks like the Bird's-Eye Primrose ('Primula laurentiana')in 'A Travellers' Guide to Wild Flowers of Newfoundland, Canada' by Bill and June Titford (Bill was killed in a car crash 5-10 years ago). Their photos were taken at The Arches and Watt's Point Calcareous Barrens (in early June) before 1995. I can't find your violet in their book.
