They’re beautiful and a joy to see. Our trout lily (Erythronium americanum) is cousin to your glacier lily and looks a lot like it but I rarely see pure white trilliums. I’d love to see more of them here!
I don’t think I ever could get tired of these flowers. Of course, when I saw the glacier lily, I thought, “What’s up, Tiger Lily?” Even if I hadn’t known the name, the relationship would have been obvious. It’s neat that they’re common enough there that they’re part of your memories of home. Some flowers are just special that way.
Yes, the flowers here are a bit ahead of yours there, aren’t they! This past week they have really begun to bloom. Today even the Arrow-leaved Balsamroot started to bloom. It’s a wonderful time of year!
