Trillium found in Our Woods




Several weeks ago My DH found two patch's of flowers trying to come up through heaps of leaves in our small woods next to our home. So he carefully rack the leaves off of them. Well this week the one patch of flowers started blooming but I had NO idea what kind of flowers they were. Yesterday at work I was talking with a co-worker and when I looked at her lovely calender of flowers there was the exact photo of the flowers blooming in my woods. They are called Trillium. My co-worker told me they were a protective wild flower and can not be picked. I have no idea if they have just naturally started growing in our woods or if the previous owner planted them. The previous owner was a elementary school teacher and she was the only one who has owned this property before us. I love looking at them and now that I know they are so special I plan to keep them safe.

Hi Judy, I can't believe your post today. I just did a google image search on Trilliums because I went to Linda Davis' blog

She has a tatted Gladiolus flower that she just designed and I thought her tatted Gladiolus resembled the Trillium. LOL! Small world.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me such nice comments. Hugs, Carol
