What weed is this?

I’m interested in backyard foraging and wondered if this is wild violet.

Howard County Maryland

As we mentioned in your other question, we don't comment on edibility, and wouldn't want to give an answer and be wrong.
It appears to be wild violet, but without seeing it in situ, touching it and seeing it's growth and surroundings, we cannot say for certain.
