more spring wildflowers

Purple Trillium, Trillium erectum, blooms here May - June in rich woods and is about 20 - 40 cm tall.

Wild oats or Bellwort, Uvularia ?grandiflora, 20 cm tall, grows in woods and thickets. I find it in bloom here May - June along my laneway.

Jack-in-the-pulpit, Arisaema triphyllum, 30 - 90 cm tall, blooms here May-June in damp woods.

Toothwort, Dentaria diphylla, a spring flower of moist woodlands, 20-40 cm tall.

These plants are just beautiful. I have some trillium grandiflorum (sp?) -the white ones but would love a few red. Maybe at the next native plant sale.

I get the urge to "own" everything too. Happily, I can walk in the woods to see these.

I missed the trilliums this year but saw many bellworts and Jack-in-the Pulpits, and Dentarias galore. Nice photos!

Gorgeous--I borrowed one of your trillium photos for this week's (computer) wallpaper, I hope you don't mind, I just couldn't resist. And that Jack-in-the-pulpit makes me drool. Hard to believe that something that looks that exotic can really crow in the cold woodlands here, isn't it?

I'm glad you are enjoying the photos. I expect in a week or so the wild flowers will be appearing in such numbers that I will lose track of them all!
