At the Feet of Angels

The garden is so lovely at this time of year. I am throughly enjoying a stroll around the garden each morning and evening taking photos as I go. Here are some to share.

I have a Red Trillium. I planted it LONG ago and thought it was lost. Did you know that when you plant a trillium it takes three or four years to grow? In order for them to spread, ants and mice must take the seeds from the Trillium to their nests and “replant” the seeds. Then in three or four more years you will get more. I haven’t seen any mice lately, but I am praying for ants. SMILETrillium Red Trillium

More later…I am off to work now. Amities, Averyclaire

    Your garden is just lovely! Trilliums are one of my favorite flowers–the first time I saw them, my father-in-law stopped at the side of the road in Michigan to show me the entire drainage ditch and beyond was covered in large white trilliums! There are loads of red trilliums at Bailly this year.

    Averyclaire: I haven’t visited your blog in quite some time, I’m sorry to say. I’m glad I stopped by today. Your trillium is beautiful; I enjoyed all your photos and your posts.

    I still occasionally visit stitchinfingers but the Quilters Anon. Group hasn’t been active lately. I’m glad, tho, that I met you there!. Kathleen
