There weren't a lot of active options on a cloudy and cold Mothers Day, but we knew the trilliums were out and decided to ramble around some of the local rural roads to have a look.
We found many many clumps nestled in the woodland fringes just off the edges of the roads. This was one of the larger. There's no detail in the following photo, but there are sure a lot of white splotches, each being a trillium.
For those who don't know here is what the trillium, Ontario's provincial flower, looks like up close. They bloom for only a short while each spring, and they're only found in less cultivated, rural areas.
There are also red trilliums, but I have never seen one in the wild. In fact, I'm not sure that I have ever seen one anywhere except in pictures. So, here's a photo that I found and stole. As far as I know it isn't copyrighted, so I don't feel too bad about the theft.
