After a bit of lovely early (too-early) spring weather, we are back to snow here in Minnesota. But that bit of warmth was enough to get me thinking about spring flowers — particularly snow-white trilliums.
Trilliums are flowers of the woodlands. I grew up along the edge of the prairie in a place where there were plenty of wildflowers, but not trilliums. Perhaps that is why I’ve been so entranced with them ever since I saw the floor of my aunt’s woodlot carpeted with these nodding white blossoms as a kid.
Could a woodland white with flowers even be real?
Since then they’ve become one of my favorite spring flowers.
While I have grown clumps of them in my yard for years,
I still seek them in the wild too.
There’s still nothing like a woodland floor bright with trillium. . . it’s so much better than spring snow!
