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!
