Searching for Trillium: Mosaic Monday


Photo thanks to goldsworld.com
I went in search of trillium that grows
in my woods. Sadly none to be found
today. I think the weather has been to cold.
I shall keep a watch out for them.
In the meantime I took photo's of  my wild
bleeding heart, ferns,columbine,exbury azalea that
was supposed to be light peach and a very occupied
birdhouse.



The exbury I planted 20 years age as a twig.
It is now taller than me (5'8") and a favorite
place of the mountain chickadees.
Be sure to visit more Mosaic Monday's by dropping
by Marys Little Red House. Thanks again to Mary our
wonderful host.

I love your mosaic Sharon, I wish I knew how to do them.
The trillium are due here also, but haven't seen any as of yet either. Same here, it's been cold and wet.

Loved those photos, Sharon. Your trillium might have snuck on by while you were doing all that weeding. The one in our yard is nearly done as are those I watch up the street.... Are we still on for this week? I hope!

HI Sharon,

I share your love of columbines. Mine are blooming like crazy right now and one of the best things is, they'll reseed themselves year after year!

Lovely flowers - no wonder your embroidery is so beautiful. You have loads of inspiration just outside your door. Nice mosaics!

Very lovely..., I hardly know any plant names (I forget people's names too!), but I enjoy them just the same.
