Thank You and Cheers!!! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I love your personification of these two trilliums. (Beautiful photo – have I told you that I adore trilliums? 🙂 ) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks, they’re pretty these flowers . . . they led me on a wild goose chase many suns and moons ago when in berry stage, got me very clear on what is not trillium and what is! I posted about it here if you’re in need of a chuckle 😆 https://dreamsonghomestead.wordpress.com/2015/03/01/wortcunnery-and-me/ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Enjoyed your post – I didn’t know that about trilliums! They mostly grow in the wild here, but they’re rare otherwise. We had a couple in the yard when I was a kid and I never noticed that they had berries once they were done blooming. My mom said that the flower must never be picked, or they won’t bloom again for seven years. Don’t know if that’s just a myth or if it’s true. Anyway, funny your adventure! Apparently they weren’t poisonous? LikeLiked by 1 person They blanket the slopes here at around 1500 feet, pink white the rare reds, haven’t seen as many in the flatlands. Have heard that about the flowers too 🌸 They’re not poisonous per se, though not edible as food either; midwives use it in combination with cohosh roots to make a labor tincture (from where it gets the name birthroot) . . . funnily, I have a friend who is a midwife, when she heard about my trillium adventure she told me she happened to have ginseng roots her father had dug and dried, so we wound up trading roots! LikeLiked by 1 person Serendipitous that you ended up with some ginseng roots after all. Also, fascinating information in general. Your posts are always both educational and entertaining. 🤗🌸❤️ LikeLiked by 1 person Beautiful verse, and lovely observation 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Sue, these flowers have a way of tickling me.
