Do you have Trilliums where you live? They are wildflowers here in Oregon and they're just wonderful - you know it's really Spring when you see their bright white faces in the forest. Hubby spotted these out our bedroom window and called me over to see, and I asked him if he'd take the camera into the woods and get some photos - the forest floor is soft and waterlogged, and he's enjoying photography more every day. The purple flowers beyond them are "Vinca Minor" or more commonly called "Periwinkle". They are taking over our forest so be careful if you plant them!
A lovely bunch of Trilliums!
The Trillium below seems to be a different variety as the petals are narrow. They thrive is shaded moist forest floors.
A story.. we used to have hundreds of these flowers but long ago a friend came over with her two little girls who were outside in the woods for a long time, and finally they came up to the back door with a wagon, HEAPED with Trillium flowers! If picked, the Trillium will not bloom for 7 years or so!
The other day I looked out the kitchen window and saw the MOST brilliant rainbow ever, hubby ran out to get a photo - I must say the photo did not show the size and color of this but I thought it would be nice to show you. See the Buff Orpington hen? She gives us pinkish brown eggs, the Rhode Island Red lays darker brown eggs and the Ameracauna lays mint green eggs. Love them!
I hope you all have had a good week and have fun plans for the weekend. We've had a lovely, slow, home-y week, very relaxing. This weekend will be the birthday celebration of our youngest grandson, Caleb. I should have some fun photos of that soon!
Love the comments, keep them coming! ((hugs)) Teresa
