ghost of spring past
trilliums are one of my very favorite spring wildflowers. there is so much happy energy in their exuberant white petals, and a drive along a country highway when trilliums are in bloom is like a spring version of a field of daisies. its as if the sun has come out to celebrate all the beauty in the world. i kept this trillium from our back yard last year and just came upon it. i have to say, it is nearly as beautiful folded and slightly crumpled, with rich deep colors, as it was last spring, full of exuberance and primary colors. i will sure be ready for the next trillium bloom this may, however. don’t get me wrong.
