Any day is a good day if there’s a Trillium in it.

The Trilliums are starting to bloom now at the footbridge over Munson Creek. (And a couple of friends joined in.)

This evening along the trail there were bells; Bluebells and Fairybells.

Their name fits: “Fairybells”.

I’ve found these tiny, delicate members of the Lily family are hard to find and even harder to photograph. They grow in 13 of the western states (but not California), Michigan (where they are listed as “threatened”), and in 5 provinces of Canada.
