    Default Trillium in my woods

    I live on wooded acres and these are my favorite spring flowers on my property. I have three different species in my woods.

    Trillium grandiflora, the Large-flowered trillium


    Trillium erectum, the purple trillium


    Trillium undulatum, the painted trillium

    Trilliums are among my favorite flowers. Don't think I've ever seen the undulatum before. [Strange in a way as my folks aren't too much farther north than you, Ron -- TC] Cool. They get lots of the grandiflorum and erectum in the woods behind their house.

    The undulatum is fairly rare here. I found only 2 of them this year on my 10 acres.

    Thanks for the memories, we used to have white and white with purple tinge trillium up in the Oregon mountains.

    What beautiful memories these brought back to me. I grew up on a farm in Ohio and in the spring we walked the woods hunting morrel mushrooms. The Trillium were beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Kerry, Thank you for asking about me.
    I am feeling better although I tire easily. I guess oxygen is a permanent thing for me, so I am limited by where I can go. At home I have a 50 foot hose that allows me to go most everywhere in the house. (I get tangled in it all the time) When I leave the house I have portable oxygen that goes with me. My family has provided an aide for me that is here from 8:00 to 12:00. She is great to take me shopping (wherever there is a cart) to the doctor etc. Yesterday we took a long drive which my husband and I really enjoyed. I haven't driven for months and Clyde no longer drives. I think that has been the hardest adjustment for me. But, I count my blessings as I adjust to a new chapter in my life.

    Katie
