Beauty in the Woods

Walking in the woods at this time of the year you will see dotted throughout the woodland the magnificent Trillium, Trillium grandiflorum.  This spring beauty is native to rich woods, thickets in Ontario, Quebec, wester Maine and New Hampshire as far south as Georgia.  This plant is protected here in Ontario as it is against the law to pick them.  It is also our Provincial emblem.

This one is the Purple Trillium, Trillium erectum.  If you wish to grow Trillium make sure you purchase it at a reputable nursery.  Mine grow under our front bay window where it is shady and cool.

Really pretty. I have always thought they were such a pretty flower. I don't think I have ever seen them for sale around here. I have seen them in a friends yard, though.
Beautiful pictures of the trillium, mine are just starting to bloom, only small buds. Have a wonderful weekend.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
