I missed last weeks Sunday stills due to being busy and such and I really didn't have motivation to do this week. I love flowers, I am terrible at photographing them. I don't have ones growing too much right now other than in the gardens and they are boring. Red tulips, some daffodils etc.
My friend Stepanie and I went for a walk back her uncles property. Wile wading through the swampy path and around trees we came across a few trilliums.
"Trilliums!" I shouted and borrowed her camera to take pictures.
See here in Canada each province/territory has it's own flower or plant. Trilliums are Ontario's. I've never seen them growing wild before. My mom used to have some at the old house but that was before I was born. She always talked fondly of their large white petals.
Aren't they pretty? They can be a variety of colours depending on the soil they are growing in. Neat!
So anyway we trudged through more swampy laneway due to the recent rain and came across not three plants but HUNDREDS!!
Excuse the blurry mess I made we were trying to balance on a log in the mud.
Of course theres a sad, but failed attempt at a macro, also standing in the mud on something I think a rock.
I think they might be illegal to pick, I am not sure. Anyway it keeps people from picking them. I know in some states in the US it is illegal. They sure are pretty to see a dreamy white carpet of them shrouded by a canopy of grand maple trees.
Spring sure is pretty.
