Wordless "Springtime" Wednesday...

I grew up in northern Wisconsin where the woods were full of flowers each spring and summer.

I so missed those "lovely ladies" that I transplanted a few Trilliums into my flower beds.


My granddaughter Caitlyn admiring the Trilliums:)




Over the years, to my excitement, they have now spread throughout our woods!




Our flowering crab is ready to burst open to brighten the green hues of our property.


Have a great week!

I love the pictures. Your granddaughter looks so cute with her little glasses on. I love Trilliums they are so nice and peaceful too. I wish I was a kid right now I would be playing in those woods. Does your grandchildren play in the woods? I used to love to play in the woods when I was little with my twin brother. What great memories I have of that and also catching poison ivy alot. But, it sure was fun playing in those woods. TAKE CARE AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!! :)

What beautiful flowers...Those trilliums remind me of Dogwoods that used to grow wild in BC....I love flowers that spread on their own....I didn't do Friday Follow this week...I had four kids most of the week, and by the time they went home, I had to spend the rest of the night doing housework...LOL! Now I am off to a wedding....Have a great weekend..
