The trilliums are out.We see them along the roadsides, at the edge of the fields and–this year–in our front garden.
Last year, I carefully transplanted a couple of plants into the front garden. One of them survived and is blooming this spring.
It’s a bit remarkable to me how many are around the farm. Growing up, I very rarely saw trilliums–Ontario’s official flower–and it was a special occasion when I did.
Now, even though I see them more regularly, it’s still special. Especially when it’s right outside my front door.
Have you ever successfully transplanted a wildflower into your garden? Do you have any elusive flowers in your area? What’s your state (or provincial) flower?
