The hills are alive with the smell of trilliums! They have a beeswax type smell and it is lovely in the morning and evening.
White trillium's are Ontario's provincial flower (our is the iris). It is illegal to pick them in Ontario. Most of the ones around us are white, but you do see the occasional purple one!

|Too much to sniff to pose with them!|

A beautiful flower. Remember once visiting the Leelanau penisula (n.w. Michigan), walking in a woods, the ground a blanket of trillium ... absolutely spectacular, and the scent the same!ReplyDelete
I never realised these had such a fine smell - though I have seen many a photograph of them. Very pretty and always best left in place - wild flowers never do well in a vase! Lee, I love the photo of you and shadow-Lady - I had to look twice to see that you were not your own shadow! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Lovely flowers; of course we don't have them here in SE USA!ReplyDelete
as far as I know I have never seen a trillium, they do look beautiufl. we have several things here in FL that are illegal to pick, in fact all wild flowers on our beaches, and sea oats are on the list.ReplyDelete
We have never seen trillium on our property but there is a nature preserve near us where they grow. You sure have lots of them.ReplyDelete
They are so pretty and we didn't realize they had a scent. We don't see many of them in our neighborhood. They are so special.ReplyDelete
We used to see them in the redwood forest...alas, they don't have any in the high desert. Yours are beautiful!!ReplyDelete

I love you Lady's shadow with you Lee. I know you are glad to see the sun!! There used to be a gift shop near us called Trillium.ReplyDelete
Wonder if they owners were Canadians?
I did not indeed to be anonymous above. BOL LOL MOLReplyDelete
So pretty. We don't get wild trilliums in the UK. Our loss!ReplyDelete
We have trillium growing here in WNY, but it's been a long time since we've seen any.ReplyDelete
Hi cousin and handsome, we get trilliums here too! But our came and went a long time ago!ReplyDelete
Trilliums are a favorite on spring wildflower walks, and I'm told that spring growth is edible, but I'll stick to my burgers. 😊 --Have a good weekend!!ReplyDelete
I haven't yet been hiking around this year, in woods.ReplyDelete
Coffee is on and stay safe
