The trilliums are out but with this unseasonable heat I doubt they’ll last long so the time to see them is now. The trillium above is a red or purple trillium (Trillium erectum) in the wooded trails near Mer Bleue. The white trilliums (Trillium grandiflorum) are much more common around here and are currently carpeting the floor of Pleasant Park Woods, an urban forest in the neighbourhood of Alta Vista where I live. If you can’t make it out to the Gatineaus I highly recommend Pleasant Park Woods, next to Pleasant Park School, as an easily accessible patch of spectacular blooms, but you’ll need to hurry.
Wildflowers look best in the wild so please leave them there for others to enjoy.
