    A pretty collection. It is always interesting for me to see what wild flowers look like elsewhere.

    All beautiful, but the first takes my breathe away.

    Sometimes it is the very fact that things are small, and so delicate, that makes them the more beautiful. Gorgeous. MJ

    Splendid pictures Eliza.

  6. lmachayes says:

    Ahhhh. I can’t get enough of the Trout Lilies and Red Benjamins right now.

  7. Interesting how different they are from country to country!

  8. I finally found some a couple of years ago when I was back up north. They are so special.

  9. Alice says:

    Woodland beauties…what a treat for our eyes and pollinators!

  10. shoreacres says:

    I nearly missed the second and third photos, until I read the comments. They’re all lovely, but it was fun to recognize the Trillium.

    Such delicate light and detail 💛💕💛

  12. Beautiful to look at. 😉

  13. A beautiful springtime slideshow!

  16. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Gosh that first flower is so unusual. Beautiful

  17. Beautiful! A friend let me dig up a blood root last week, and I planted it today. 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Judy! The ants will spread the bloodroot seeds and in a few years you’ll have quite a few patches. I’m always surprised to see where they pop up around my yard.

    I’m in love with that red Trillium!

    Beautiful series of shots! Spring is such a pleasant season, especially coming after a cold winter.

  20. Beautiful, especially the red flower and its composition!

  21. So pretty, Eliza. It is already in the 90’s temp-wise out here. Love driving up to the higher elevations and seeing the flowers in July!

  22. Joanne says:

    Your native flowers are very differnt to ours here in Australia, but equally as striking.

  23. gaiainaction says:

    Lovely and delicate flowers Eliza!

  24. Bela Johnson says:

    Stinking Benjamins! Still, how beautiful is the trillium in any color?! ❤️

  25. Debbie says:

    Eliza, these are so beautiful — thank you for brightening my day!

  26. What super native flowers! The angle of your shot of the trillium is brilliant.

  27. Cathy says:

    Exquisite photos of your special native wild flowers. 😃

  28. A lovely threesome, Eliza. I also didn’t recognize the slideshow feature, missed those arrows, until reading comments. The email notification showed all three so I should have known. 🙂 Happy Spring!

  29. pbmgarden says:

    Eliza, what treasures you have. The red trillium is stunning.

  30. Beautiful photos and love the color of the first flower!🙂

  31. Wonderful to see these native wildflowers enjoying their place in the world. Is the top one a Trillium and the bottom one a Troutlilly? And what about the one in the middle? I’ll always remember the first few Nature Conservancy guided walks I went on decades ago when I learned these plants and their. names.

  32. I think I heard a whisper from the flower. She said: Isn’t this world beautiful? Enjoy it while you can 🙂

  33. rajkkhoja says:

    Beautiful flower.

  34. Adele Brand says:

    Just lovely! Glad that spring is finding you now.

  35. As I’ve said to Steve G., you guys get a thrillium from your trillium.
