Trillium

The Trillium are in full bloom.  There are areas in Northern Minnesota where they brighten the forest this time of year.  We have a few in our area.

Trillium near Lake George

We saw them up near Lake George.  They had city wide garage sales last Friday.  Far Guy didn’t buy a thing and me well I bought more glass for flowers.

Trillium grandiflorum

When we got home we checked out our Trillium and sure enough she was blooming….just one plant and one bloom.  The seeds are said to be dispersed by insects…maybe someday we will have more plants.

  7. Love the trillium although haven't seen them here (okay so maybe I've not looked very hard). Have you seen the little solar glass angel light made out of the glassware??

  8. They are lovely flowers. We have them here in our back bush, but with our early start to summer, they are long gone.

  12. Delicate! And your glass flowers will look delicate, too. I am always amazed they survive the wind and storms. :)

  13. I had forgotten that the woods at the NalleyValley house were full of these little beauties. The sale sounds fun and I'm happy you found some more glass to create flowers.

  17. Lovely wildflower!
    I saw on some ones blog they were making glass trees to hang.
    Some looked like Christmas trees.

  18. I don't know that I've ever seen a Trillium but I know we do have them in the area. I should see if the plant shops sell them and get one to enjoy.

  19. Trillium are such wonderful harbingers of spring. I love them. We are fortunate to have the native ones growing in our yard. We transplanted them from the wild many years ago.
