For me spring is the best time of year, not because it gets warmer, tho that helps, but because the world comes alive again after a long winter sleep. Birds began moving north, mammals begin to emerge from hibernation and plants begin sprouting.
Spring is a time of renewal. In the woodlands we begin finding wildflowers blooming and for me some of the prettiest wildflowers are the large flowered Trilliums.
One of the first to bloom is the Red Trillium ( Trillium erected ) also known as Wake-robin.
Next we might find the magnificent White Trillium ( Trillium grandiflorum ). These are sometimes called Large-flowered Trillium or White Wake-robin. It is not uncommon to find large groups of these flowers covering the forest floor.
And the third of this trio is the beautiful Painted Trillium (Trillium undulatum ) or Painted Lady. So if you are out walking the woods in early spring keep a lookout for the beautiful trilliums.
