Trilliums - a splash of beauty in the forest!

Trilliums, Trillium ovatum, have been blooming for several weeks. When they are young the bloom is white. But when they age a bit the bloom begins to turns pink. I noticed a few pale pink blooms the other day.

 And Redwood Violets have begun to bloom in sunny spots on the forest's edge.
Violet is the flower, not the color, which is obviously bright yellow!

Did you know that trillium is the official flower of the province of Ontario? They grow quite a lot larger there though. I love them all!

No, I did not know they were the official flower of Ontario! They are worthy, though. Thanks, Lita.
