Weekly Travel Theme: Green

Each province in Canada has its own provincial flower. Ontario happens to be the trillium. Each spring for a few short weeks these tri-petaled flowers cover forest floors. Most of the foliage is green except for the 3 white petals, but some have a slight pinkish hue.

  1. I love trilliums! They grow here in abundance too!

    • Theif! Ha ha… they are lovely and a great sign of spring. They don’t last long, so I have only snapped photos of them that once.

    I love trilliums….you are permitted to dig them up and transplant them in your own garden. Garril did that and they are so beautiful.

    • Dad did too. We had a few in the yard, but they didn’t take, so I don’t think he has them anymore. I know there is a fine if you pick them. A teacher from public school said her kids picked them for her once and she was worried she was get a huge fine since they gave her a small bouquet!

  3. They grow wild there? here they are cultivated but not common, beautiful plants.

    • Yes they are wild… probably less than days gone by with so much development. In any ‘foresty’ area they come up in abundance each spring for only a few short days-weeks. Not just Ontario, but they are our ‘flower’.

  4. We had them in our backyard in Ottawa. I love them πŸ™‚

  5. That’s a really beautiful picture and flower too!
