The woods are coming alive with the warm temperatures. It was almost 80 degrees yesterday.
The Trillium are blooming. Trillium are native to Minnesota.
They gladly share their space with another native plant the Large Flowered Bellwort.

Far Guy’s Trillium is up and blooming and sharing with a two legged spider..well that’s all I see.. he could have more legs. I did not notice him until I downloaded the photo:)
The weather is weird..not much for rain..what happened to the weather of long ago when it rained for weeks on end. Cloud bursts of rain..the girls and I would play barefoot in the rivers that flowed down the driveway and watch out for the snapping turtles that would be chased out of the lake by the rains. One year at the resort we had a big old snapping turtle next to our step during a rain. I recall dogs barking and girls screaming…Far Guy chased the mean old turtle back into the lake. That house had a leaky roof in the hallway..so buckets and towels had to be put on the floor every time it rained. I don’t miss that.
Last night there was a bit of a rainbow in the sky..but it was just like a broken little piece of rainbow.
Strange, I have seen sun dogs in the winter on cold days but never sun dogs on a day when it was 80 F or 26C :)
