Trillium Trivia

After that last trillium post I learned that our lovely white stars start their blush after they've been fertilized.  Did you know that there is a trillium garden that grows all the trillium species found in the world! not so very far away at Cottage Lake Gardens in Woodinville?  Have a look at Catherine James wonderful watercolor paintings on this subject and more.  Her blog is certainly a fitting tribute to  Earth Day every day!

This painting acknowledges another woodland wonder, the salmonberry.... before the thicket becomes impenetrable there is the humming bird!
