Thanks Ydd, wish I could take some of the credit! I'm having a lot of fun just cataloging the wild flowers!

Another perfect example of mother nature showing us how it's done...lol. It's downright delightful.

LOL... I wish you could walk the path up into the forest, Jerrie! You'd enjoy the dappled shade and the birdsong ...and the flowers...little clumps of unexpected colour and the ferns! they are just wonderful. I find that my problems are diminished if I take a few minutes and wander up the trail into the shade of the talllll trees!

I have one Trillium plant that I'm proud of it's purple ,it's nice to see some white ones ......

Will check the whites as they are now turned pink and withering...if I can harvest some seed, I'll send it. only downside to seed of trillium is that it takes 7 years to establish a blooming plant. But who can say? With your very green thumb...(Jack-in-the-Pulpit green) you might whittle a year or two off of the timeline! What do you say?
BTW...the pic above is of "False Solomon's Seal"...the real SS has blossom on the underside of the frond not at the end (as pictured.)
