The Trillium has faded to pink. They start out white and then turn pink and fade away….the whole plant dissapears until next year. I have read that it can take up to ten years for the seeds to grow to make new rhizomes…and that the Trillium is one of the only plants that changes color as it blooms.
It was a busy week. I spent three afternoons this week out and about. One day going to garage sales with Far Guy, one day in Detroit Lakes with Jen and one day out just for me. The day in DL with Jen; we spent some time in the cemetery, the thrift shop, JC Penneys, a bakery and driving around until we decided to walk in Wally World.
The Dame’s Rocket was very pretty this year. Hesperis matronalis is it’s real name. It can be easily confused with Phox…but Dame’s Rocket has four petals that make up the flower and Phlox has five.
