Down in the shady corners of the Big Garden lawn, I have quite a sizable trillium patch. These Spring beauties are now coming into bloom and are brightening up the forest under story.
Wild Trillium are quite common on our property but like most wildflowers their blooming period lasts only for a few weeks. It can be even shorter if the weather is warm. Just as I begin to appreciate all of the flashes of white along the forest floor, it seems the blooms begin to fade and the show is over for another year.
